Alamo’s Raborn to Lead Expanded Division

Rick Raborn, the executive vice president of the agricultural division at Alamo Group, will become the executive vice president of the vegetation management division when Alamo’s fourth quarter begins.

The new title is part of a realignment of divisions announced with a series of changes at Alamo.

“Rick Raborn has done an outstanding job managing the company’s agricultural division over the last six years,” said Jeff Leonard, Alamo Group’s president and CEO. “I believe his sense of urgency as well as his focus on growth and continuous improvement will translate into success as he assumes responsibility for a significantly larger division with Alamo Group.”

The vegetation management division will include all of the agricultural division, plus the mowing and forestry/tree care operations that were previously part of the industrial division.

The Morbark and Dutch Power business units, which Alamo Group acquired over the past two years, will be part of vegetation management.

The industrial division will be renamed the industrial equipment division. Michael Haberman will be the executive vice president.

In other news, Alamo Group CFO Dan Malone will become the company’s first chief sustainability officer. Succeeding Malone as CFO will be Richard Wehrle, Alamo’s controller and treasurer.
