Meanwhile, Jeff Weller joins the Kirby-Smith team as vice president/general manager, North Division, based out of the Oklahoma City branch. Mr. Weller comes to Kirby-Smith from Link-Belt Mid-Atlantic, where he worked for the past 28 years, most recently serving as the General Manager. Weller has 35 years of experience in the equipment industry.
