Before joining Whitmore, McCreary spent 21 years in maintenance management in the Powder River Basin and 16 years at Arch Coal’s corporate office as the Director of Technical & Maintenance Services. At Whitmore, Bob will be focused on expanding the company’s presence in South Africa, India, Europe and Russia.
“Robert brings a wealth of expertise and hands-on experience in the mining industry,” said Jack Ellis, Vice-President of Sales. “He understands the unique challenges of heavy industry and brings insights into how Whitmore can better serve this area of its customer base.”
In his previous position, McCreary developed a maintenance management program focused on equipment reliability, condition monitoring/predictive measures, preventative maintenance and maintenance planning and scheduling. Through these efforts, a comprehensive, company-wide oil reliability program was developed that complimented overall company goals and saved the company millions.
