“Work ethic and passion – if you want to build a legacy, there is no substitute for them,” said Al-Suwaidi. “I am very happy to become a part of the Kirby-Smith family and to lend my experience to help others grow. Together we are going to leave a legacy in the energy sector that our children and grandchildren will remember!”

Al-Suwaidi will be responsible for managing existing customer accounts of KSM’s Pipeline Services division, which operates independent of territory restrictions, as well as developing new customers nationally in the pipeline construction industry. He joins a sales team that includes fellow account managers Derek Birdwell and Scotty Cameron.

Al-Suwaidi comes to KSM with 16 years of experience in the heavy equipment industry which includes 10 Salesman of the Year Awards across various companies, numerous awards for sales/rental revenue and even an innovation award for making the first YouTube sales call in 2012 which resulted in the sale of a large equipment package. Those 16 years also include 10 years directly related to the pipeline construction and energy segment, and extensive time selling, renting and supporting Komatsu equipment.

“You learn quick that Allen never sets limits for himself, only goals,” said Joe Trapani, vice president and general manager, KSM Pipeline Services. “He believes in setting high standards and is driven to see our customers and team succeed. We are very excited to have him join us!”
