Modustri names VP of business development
A startup maker of measurement and data-collection software and hardware has a new vice president of business development.
Modustri in Grand Rapids said last month that it has named Kevin Stephens to the role.
The company’s products have applications in several industries and markets: construction, transportation, energy, heavy equipment and infrastructure.
Stephens’ primary responsibility will be helping customers and dealers achieve higher safety standards and better cost efficiencies, while also expanding Modustri’s national and global reach.
"With a network as solid as his reputation, we are fortunate to welcome Kevin to our organization," said Brian Steketee, founder and CEO, Modustri. "He is a proven asset with unparalleled knowledge in the industries our technology benefits, thus positioning Modustri for even greater success."
Previously, Stephens served for the last six years at Boyd & Sons Machinery as operations manager and while there, he increased sales by more than $15 million in five years.
Before that, Stephens worked for about three decades in a number of roles at S. Cohn & Sons, becoming branch manager.
He studied business administration and computer programming at Vincennes University.
