Michael J. Mack Jr., the new president of John Deere’s Worldwide Construction & Forestry Division, has prepared for this leadership position through a variety of assignments at Deere in finance, engineering, marketing and operations.

Mack said he is looking forward to leading the Worldwide Construction & Forestry Division, adding that he’s been impressed with the division’s track record during trying times.

“I am fortunate to be joining a close-knit team that has a strong focus on execution,” he said. “My preliminary focus is to build upon the strong foundation that has been established in many areas and position Deere to make the most of the long-term potential of this division.”

Mack had been senior vice president and chief financial officer of Deere & Company since January 2006. He had served previously in the finance division as vice president and treasurer, and in the company’s Worldwide Commercial & Consumer Division as senior vice president, marketing and administration.

He also has held other positions in a wide range of Deere disciplines in North America and Europe, including treasury, dealer systems, business development, purchasing and manufacturing.

Mack replaces Samuel R. Allen, who is the first president of Deere’s Construction & Forestry Division to be elected to the position of chief executive officer at Deere & Company in the company’s 172-year history.
