Warehouse mezzanine solution leader Cubic Designs, a part of MiTek Mezzanine Systems, is very pleased to announce the promotion of Mike Stearns to the role of National Sales Manager for North America.
“We are very excited to have Mike in this leadership role, as we see that he possesses the best combination of industry experience and drive for growth personally and professionally of all the candidates we evaluated,” said MiTek Mezzanine Systems President, Gene Toombs. “Adding Mike as the leader to the team continues to support our vision for growth in the MiTek Mezzanine Systems Division, with a focus on delivering global partnerships with local solutions. Our teams continue to focus on how to provide our custom engineered mezzanine solutions with the speed and flexibility our customers need to drive their businesses forward.”
When asked about his new role, Stearns responded, “I’m humbled to have been chosen to represent the Cubic sales division in what promises to be a consequential time. We’ve never had more opportunity ahead of us. It will be challenging but I simply could not ask for better strategic partners with our customers and sales team to carry us through to the next level.”
Stearns will be responsible for the overall strategic development and direction of the sales team. He will be a key player on the North American leadership group meanwhile also working closely with the UK and German offices on global account activity. Stearns is well-versed in mezzanines and the material handling industry as he has been serving Cubic Designs’ strategic partners and customers as the Northeast Regional Manager since 2005. He has over 20 years of experience in the material handling industry.
The experienced Cubic Designs account management team will continue to serve their regions and accounts under Stearns’ leadership. Tom Surges serves the Midwest, Andrew Galati serves the Mideast, Jarod Rouch serves the Southeast, and Ryan Agnew serves national accounts. We will be backfilling the Northeast when we find the best candidate for the role.
MiTek acquired Cubic Designs in 2013 and, in 2017, Cubic Designs’ European counterparts Mezzanine International in the United Kingdom and Mezzanine Europe GmbH in Germany. These acquisitions uniquely position MiTek Mezzanine Systems as a global leader with local solutions in the mezzanine engineering space.
