Welcome to the first installment of CDE's 'Getting to Know' feature where we will introduce some of the many people around the world who continue to help CDE deliver world-class wet processing equipment solutions.
First up is Sean O'Leary, CDE CustomCare Manager for North America.
Over to Sean!
I may be new to life at CDE, having joined the team at the end of the summer but I am a veteran of the industry with many years of practical on-site experience. Previously, I have worked for large mining and manufacturing companies and in Industrial Maintenance as a Certified Maintenance Reliability Practitioner. In my previous roles, I helped those businesses ensure their operations were properly maintained and completely optimized for efficiency.
I was also previously a CDE customer, purchasing a CDE M4500 sand wash plant and building a greenfield facility around it. This practical, insider knowledge of our customer’s world is lending itself to how we can better serve our customers in North America
Based at our North American Center of Excellence in Cleburne, Texas, I am the CustomCare Manager for North America, responsible for the warehouse, spares & parts, and our team of Regional Service Engineers across the region. I love to be out on the road, working closely with customers to understand the challenges they face and work together to establish better ways for maintaining their plants and maximizing operational efficiency.
Delivering A Tailored Solution
CDE CustomCare in North America is all about developing a partnership with our customers, and this partnership is designed around their maintenance resources, needs, and methodologies. No one company maintains their equipment the same so the CustomCare solution is tailored to the specific needs of each customer and their plant, from on site support and parts to complete maintenance turn-key operations.
As a millwright, fabricator, welder and all-round mechanic myself, I take great pride in working for a company that designs, manufactures and installs world-class engineering solutions. CDE has enjoyed great growth in recent years and this role felt like the right opportunity for me to support the business’ growth plans in the upcoming years.
I have settled in quickly to life at CDE, the family-feel atmosphere in Cleburne and the support from my colleagues has been fantastic. The on-boarding process armed me with everything I needed to feel confident to head out and meet our customers immediately. The positive spirit is infectious and I am amazed at the lengths each teammate goes to help out each other.
Outside of Work...
I’m no stranger to getting my hands dirty - I work on, tune and build cars in my spare time. In 2000-2003, I worked for the NAPA Craftsman Truck Team and we won the ‘Rookie of the Year’ and ‘Engine Builder of the Year’ and came in fourth in the 2003 Championship. I love racing, I have been involved with NASCAR in the past and tuned fuel injection systems for Shelby American and Baja Off-Road Racing Teams. I also have a passion for US Football and even volunteered as an assistant coach for my son’s peewee football team.
