Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas (HCEA) named J.Y. Kim company president.

Kim is a 28-year Hyundai veteran who began his career as part of an overseas sales team to support North American operations. He later worked at HCEA’s Chicago office.

According to HCEA, Kim was instrumental in establishing a foundation for a Brazilian factory and sales company before managing operations for Indian manufacturing, sales and marketing.

After the two overseas stays, he worked with emerging countries and regions such as Russia, Australia, New Zealand, Latin America and a number in Southeast Asia.

“We are excited to have J.Y. bring his passion, market knowledge and support, as well as his understanding of worldwide trade operations to North America, especially when understanding import/export policies has become a critical part of successful management,” says Stan Park, HCEA vice president of distribution and marketing

HCEA offers a full line of wheel loaders, crawler excavators ranging from compact models to mass excavators, wheeled excavators, compaction equipment, and hydraulic breakers.
