Steinert US, Walton, Ky., a supplier of separation equipment for the scrap, waste, recycling and mining markets, has announced the retirement of Dennis Ciccotelli.
Ciccotelli, the company’s scrap market vice president, has worked with Steinert since the German company formed a subsidiary in the United States. He has worked for close to 50 years in the recycling industry. He will officially retire on May 31, 2013.
During Ciccotelli’s tenure with Steinert, the company grew from a resale entity with three employees to a full service corporation with more than 30 employees, according to a Steinert news release.
“For many of our customers Steinert US is Dennis Ciccotelli,” says Steinert US President Jason Looman. “He has been a great leader, innovator, friend and mentor to many in the industry. Dennis’ dedication to Steinert and the industry is unparalleled and deserves our greatest of thanks.”
“From the very beginning Dennis supported Steinert’s development in the North American market,” says Marcus Heinrich, CEO of Steinert GmbH. “Over the years he helped to develop the understanding within the Steinert Group that the business is not only about one specific technology, but about the best possible solution for our customers. Developing concepts for our clients, together with the application specialist around the world, became his strength. We thank Dennis for his outstanding achievements and fantastic support and we wish him all the best in his retirement.”
