Strongco Corporation has announced the appointment of Oliver Nachevski to the position of vice president and chief operating officer (COO).

Before the appointment, Nachevski served as Strongco’s vice president of construction equipment.

“Over the past several years, Strongco has undergone significant change in an effort to reposition the business and focus on our core strengths. The creation of the COO role will provide more centralized leadership, with the goal of delivering greater operational excellence during the next phase of stability, sustainability and strategic growth,” said Robert Beutel, executive chairman of the company.

“Oliver’s many years of service at Strongco, combined with his demonstrated leadership, make him well suited to propel our operating initiatives across all of the business units. On behalf of the Board of Directors, I look forward to him bringing this experience and commitment to his new post.”

As vice president and COO of Strongco, Oliver will oversee all operations, including construction equipment, cranes and finance, and will play a key role in coordinating and integrating the business for maximum efficiency and reward.

Oliver joined the company in 1996. He has held many titles, such as controller of the company’s western division, where he earned a CGA designation in Alberta.

In 2004, he accepted a position at head office as assistant controller and national credit manager, and later director of national credit and inventory.

In 2008, Oliver became operations manager, cranes and material handling division. In 2012, he was promoted to lead the implementation of Strongco’s new SAP computer system as director of dealer management system implementation.

In 2013, he was appointed regional vice president, Case and in 2016 promoted to vice president of construction equipment, which centralized leadership for both Strongco’s Case and Multiline/Volvo divisions.

“This is an exciting time for Strongco in terms of the strategic transformation of the company,” Nachevski said. “In collaboration with our strong team, I look forward to the opportunity to drive the business forward.”
