Kirby-Smith Machinery Inc. (KSM) has promoted Rebecca McNatt to director of construction technology. In this role, McNatt will be responsible for the growth and development of Komatsu Smart Construction and other equipment manufacturer technology programs offered through KSM. Smart Construction from Komatsu provides customers with equipment and services designed to increase production and accuracy, connecting all jobsite information involved in every phase of construction, from pre-construction to completion. McNatt will focus on strategies that maximize the potential of this technology for KSM and its customer base.
"We look forward to Rebecca assuming this important role here at Kirby-Smith," said Del Keffer, vice president of sales. "During her tenure here, Rebecca has changed the way we look at unit operation and service from an ‘hours used' perspective to a data generated model, focusing on many factors of operator utilization, environmental specifics and total workload. In her new position, Rebecca will be tasked to lead Kirby-Smith and our customers into the exciting and high-production world of ‘Intelligent Construction'."
Before her promotion, McNatt served as KOMTRAX manager of Kirby-Smith, analyzing and managing telematics data for KSM customers as well as the heavy equipment dealer's own rental fleet. She has more than 21 years' experience combined between the heavy equipment and automotive industry, including experience as a service manager and shop production manager.
"Smart Construction is the future of our industry," said McNatt. "Our manufacturing partners are the leaders in construction technology, allowing Kirby-Smith the opportunity to offer customers the best equipment available on the market along with providing total jobsite solutions. Having a strong background in product support, my focus is always directed on building relationships and fulfilling commitments to better serve our customers, manufacturing partners and employees. I am grateful for the opportunity to build and grow Kirby-Smith's Smart Construction Division and look forward to our success."
