Jim– Executive Vice President

Over my 37 years of industry experience, what I enjoy most is working with the people in our business! Not only the people of Empire, but with Caterpillar and our clients as well. From the first day I started at Empire pushing a broom in the parts warehouse to my current position as an Executive Vice President – I have worked with, learned from, coached and mentored some of the greatest people. I have also been very fortunate to build friendships that will last a lifetime.

Tina– Mining Business Analyst

It is important to me to maintain a work-life balance and succeed both personally and professionally. I recently received my Bachelor’s degree, a milestone goal, through the support of Empire. The company values are a part of my everyday life; I have them posted at my work desk and home office. I think teamwork resonates the most for me. It gives me great satisfaction to assist others in completing a task or solving a challenge.

David– Machinery Sales Account Manager

Empire has given me the ability to grow as an individual within the organization, as well as the tools and training to help provide solutions for our clients to help grow their business. Our corporate values are truly the core of our organization and what we strive for every day at work and at home. The values make Empire the best in the industry and a place for me to call home for the past 16 years and many more to come.

Jose– Mining Support Field Technician

My priority is to keep improving in my role as a technician and to provide clients with the best quality and service. Empire provides me with all the assets and resources to do so – they offer classroom training, web based training, and the best tooling and technical support available. I love being part of a great team and working with the best people in the business.

Sally– Marketing Data Analytics Manager

The most important thing to me is making a difference, being able to make things better for Empire and our employees. In my many roles, I’ve had the opportunity to work in multiple departments with a wide range of people improving processes and helping develop others. I built my career at Empire because of the people I get to work with and the opportunity to learn and grow as an employee.

Carl– Component Rebuild Technician

I work in an environment where it is hands-on, which I really enjoy. I’m proud to work at a company with such a strong safety culture and that they provide me with tools such as training and development that allow me to perform my job at 100%!
