Doosan Infracore Portable Power President Retires
Lawrence (Larry) Silber, president of Doosan Infracore Portable Power, formerly Ingersoll Rand Utility Equipment, has announced his retirement effective June 1, 2008, after 30 years service.
“After thirty years with Ingersoll Rand and now Doosan Infracore International, it’s an appropriate time for me to retire,” said Silber. “Our company is now in the best shape of its 130-year history. I know that I leave this great company in excellent hands.”
Silber began his career with Ingersoll Rand as a sales trainee in the professional tools group. He moved into marketing and business management, holding various positions such as regional sales manager and national sales manager. In 1989, Silber was promoted to vice president, holding that title in many capacities of the business: sales and worldwide marketing, automotive aftermarket and sales/distribution operations.
In 1997, Silber moved from the professional tools group to the construction and mining group, where he served as vice president of rental sales and strategic business development and then vice president of U.S. and Canadian sales.
In January 2000, Silber became president of Ingersoll Rand Equipment & Services Co., where he was responsible for all Ingersoll Rand stores and remarketing initiatives. In 2002, he took charge of sales relationships and the additional responsibility of developing its global remarketing business.
In 2006, Silber was named president of Ingersoll Rand Utility Equipment and then president of Doosan Infracore Portable Power when the company was acquired by Doosan Infracore in 2007. The company has said selection of a new president is underway.
