"I'm excited for this opportunity to help lead the Heavy Metal Equipment team," said Emge.

I look forward to being a part of a fast-growing company and working with a fun and ambitious team."

Originally from Montana, Emge began his career in 1989 as a truck engine mechanic, working his way up to the position of truck engine account manager before transitioning into the heavy equipment side of the business in 2000. Over a 20-year period, Emge served in a diverse span of roles, including as rental manager, product support manager, sales operations manager and asset manager.

"We love that Kevin Emge has such a wide variety of experience," said Curry Smythe, CEO of Heavy Metal Equipment. "He has worked in nearly every position in the industry, and we think that will go a long way in helping grow collaboration and communication between Heavy Metal Equipment's various departments."

In his free time, Emge enjoys film-making as well as design and home improvement projects. He also has a passion for customizing and showing his latest project car, his 2008 Shelby GT500 Ford Mustang.

"You can look for me in the next car show," Emge said.
