Montagano will succeed Bob Hickey, who retires after leading a strong period of growth for the company since taking over as president in 2013.
Kubota Canada Ltd. has announced that Yannick Montagano will succeed Bob Hickey in his role as president of the company following his retirement on June 30, 2022.
A 25-year veteran of Canada’s industrial sector, Montagano steps into the role from his current position as Kubota Canada’s vice president of sales, marketing, service and engineering – a role he’s held since December 2018.
Hickey’s retirement comes after a more than 40-year career with Kubota Canada – having first joined the company in 1981 as controller – where he took on several leadership positions before stepping into the role of president in 2013. In this time, Hickey contributed to an unprecedented period of growth for Kubota Canada, leaving the company in an incredibly strong position, with over $1 billion in sales projected for 2022.
