Ritchie Bros. introduces new senior leader to its U.S. team

Sam Wyant will serve as Senior Vice President of Ritchie Bros.' Strategic Accounts Team

CHICAGO, April 7, 2016 /CNW/ - In May 2015, Ritchie Bros. hired Terry Dolan as its new President for its U.S. and Latin America business. Terry joined the company with over 15 years of executive and general management experience in the industrial sector, including leading national sales, operations and marketing teams.

Since joining Ritchie Bros., Terry has recognized the importance of building a strong strategic accounts group to serve its largest customers and has recently added a new leader to bolster the existing team. Sam Wyant, who comes to Ritchie Bros. with 22 years of experience in the equipment industry, will serve as the new Senior Vice President of the Strategic Accounts group. Sam previously worked for Caterpillar, CNH and most recently Volvo Construction Equipment.

"Sam is a hands-on leader with strong customer relationships and proven ability to manage complex projects," said Mr. Dolan. "Throughout his career, Sam has led high-performing teams, focused on contractors, distribution and large national accounts in the construction, utility, mining, oil, and gas sectors. He will be a huge asset to our already strong Strategic Accounts team, adding to our ability to provide unmatched service to the largest companies in the equipment and trucking industries."

Ritchie Bros.' Strategic Accounts team provides asset management and disposition solutions for the company's largest national account customers. Ritchie Bros. offers a range of business solutions to best meet the needs of the customer, including unreserved public auctions, an online auction marketplace, private treaty sales, enterprise sales solutions and more.

Sam's most recent role was Global Director of Sales, Marketing, and Aftermarket for Terex Trucks, which was acquired by Volvo Construction Equipment in 2014.

"Over the last 20 plus years of my heavy equipment career, I've had great admiration for Ritchie Bros.' performance and its relationship with customers," said Mr. Wyant. "And now that I've joined the team, I see the expertise and professionalism first-hand. Everyone at Ritchie Bros. is driven to provide first-class service and innovative solutions that serve the needs of every equipment owner and manager."

Sam started with Ritchie Bros. in March 2016.
