Moore began his career at Link-Belt in 1977, accepting a position as an associate design engineer in the Tower Gantry Crane Product Group at Link-Belt in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. He then moved to the Lattice Boom Crawler Product Group, eventually being promoted to senior design engineer.

He began his current position as vice president of engineering in January 2012 and assumed responsibility for all design functions.

“Don is well respected in the industry, and has a great working relationship throughout the Link-Belt organization, including our distributors, customers and vendors. He will be greatly missed,” said Porter.
