Cashman Welcomes John Currie, New Regional Sales Manager

Published on September 1, 2011

Thursday, September 01, 2011 (Las Vegas, Nevada) Cashman Equipment is pleased to welcome John Currie to the Reno, Nevada team as the Regional Sales Manager. Currie brings years of relevant industry experience to Cashman, particularly in the construction and mining sectors.

Currie began his career in the equipment business at Western States Equipment Co, the Caterpillar dealer for Idaho along with portions of Oregon, Washington, and Montana. His first assignment at Western States had him spending seven years as a General Line Sales Representative, covering a nine county territory in eastern Idaho. His achievements in that role included winning a significant mining fleet order… the largest at the time in Western State’s history. Thereafter, Currie desired to progress into sales management and took an opportunity at another Caterpillar dealership, Seattle’s NC Machinery. Currie was an Area Sales Manager in Washington state for five years until there was a Product Support Sales Manager opening at Western States. Currie returned to Western States to fulfill that position, and then exercised his superior customer and employee interaction skills as General Manager, then Vice President, of Service. He spent approximately nine years at the company before taking the Regional Sales Manager position at Nevada’s Caterpillar dealership.

At Cashman Equipment, Currie is looking forward to getting re-engaged in the machine sales side of the business. His valuable leadership skills will be of great addition to the Reno management team and to the company’s sales and heavy rents efforts in the region.

“John is extremely knowledgeable about our industry as well as Caterpillar in particular,” said Todd Gilligan, General Manager of Sales. “It will allow him to immediately get engaged in our operations and help focus our sales efforts in the right areas.”

Currie and his family recently relocated from Boise, Idaho to the Reno, Nevada area.
