“Rental centers have always been an important part of our business because they offer endusers a cost-effective alternative to owning equipment,” said Erik Sparby, Atlas Copco Construction Equipment president and general manager. “Matt’s previous success with developing service operations, customer support teams and logistics will translate well in his new role, supporting an industry that thrives on products that have high utilization rates. And his excellent relationship with many rental centers make him an excellent fit for his new role.”
Cadnum, from Cleveland, brings more than 20 years of experience in the construction equipment industry — more than half of which is with Atlas Copco. This experience gives him insight on finding innovative equipment- and service-based solutions, as well as focusing on key issues within the rental industry, such as cost of ownership and fleet utilization.
“I’m looking forward to building strong, business relationships with our customers and ensuring our team continues to provide industry-leading assistance by offering the best equipment, parts, service and aftermarket support,” Cadnum said.
Prior to the new appointment, Cadnum was Atlas Copco vice president, aftermarket for more than six years. He contributed to building a strong service network with seven service centers across the U.S. and developed a robust logistics system to ensure spare parts and consumables were readily available for customers.
“I had a tremendous team that allowed me to be successful during the past 12 years at Atlas Copco,” Cadnum said. “Their commitment to serving our customers allows us to be as successful as we are.”
Cadnum resides in northeastern Ohio with his wife and three children. When he’s not working, he regularly attends sporting events, drives off-road vehicles and tinkers in his workshop.
