ROCKMART, Ga. — Miura America, a manufacturer of industrial steam boilers based here, reports that it has promoted Paul O’Donnell to executive vice president.
The company has also promoted several other key executives and added new team members.
“We are pleased to recognize members of the Miura team who have helped us to achieve our great success,” says Tatsuya Fujiwara, president of Miura America. “That success has also allowed us to welcome new members to our team and continue to support our great customers with innovative products and services.”
Miura America says O’Donnell, who began working with the company in 2005 as a regional sales manager, has been instrumental in the company’s growth, which he credits to the Miura sales team and rep organization for “effectively competing against traditional brands and providing customers with the information they need to understand why Miura boilers are more efficient, more reliable, and more ecologically friendly.
“In these challenging times, it is essential that businesses, schools and hospitals be able to operate their steam plants in a manner consistent with their needs, and that means relying on Miura’s modular, more efficient boiler systems that can respond quickly to changing requirements.”
Arne Irwin has been promoted to vice president strategy and will also be overseeing marketing and business development.
His responsibilities will include guiding strategic development while continuing his work with Steam as a Service, a next-generation program that was introduced in 2020 that requires no upfront costs while delivering state-of-the-art, fully-controlled steam for a single monthly fee.
Andy Miller, Miura’s vice president maintenance operations, is a new team member, who was formerly a combat veteran in the U.S. Army, where he served as an engineer and achieved the rank of captain.
He also has extensive private sector experience in supply chain, operations, and quality control, and will work closely with Miura’s Logistics group to continue and support the work initiated by Brandon Rueter.
Miura began its U.S. manufacturing operations here in 2009, which will now be run by new Plant Manager Eddie Everson, who brings 15 years of experience in materials management, operations management and plant management of more than 500 employees in the wire and cable industry.
Kiyo Sato will also be joining Miura as the new lead on global account development, where his 15 years with the company creating and implementing business strategies for current and new multiple installation customers will help to strengthen Miura’s worldwide leadership.
“Anticipating and responding to customer needs and requirements, has been the driving force behind the Miura brand from the beginning,” says O’Donnell. “Today, we are in a better position than ever to deliver on that promise.”
