Carl Rees’s Retirement – 39 Years of Service

After a long career with Loomis Brothers, Carl Rees has decided to retire. Carl’s retirement will be effective May 1, 2019.

Joining our company in 1980, Carl has worked with Loomis Brothers for 39 years; longer than any other employee in our company’s 70-year history. Carl began his career installing machines and working with our service department. A few years later he started working in our sales department where he was trained and mentored by his father, Jack. This experience proved to be invaluable when Carl started working his own sales territory that included central and southern Illinois, southeastern Iowa, and western Kentucky. After a long run as a territory sales rep Carl accepted promotions to several management positions: sales manager, vice president of sales, and his current position as our vice president of strategic accounts.

Carl’s success throughout his career at Loomis Brothers has earned him a reputation as being one of the top dealer sales professionals in the Milnor/Chicago dealer network. He is the recipient of numerous sales achievement awards from Pellerin Milnor, Chicago Dryer, and other leading manufacturers. In particular, Carl has won Milnor’s coveted “Key Man” award for a record eleven times; a record that is likely to stand for a long time.

While we will all miss Carl and his industry experience, he has helped us prepare for our future by doing what his father did for him; training and mentoring his son, Gabe. Loomis Brothers has now been the benefactor of working with three generations of the Rees family! We pride ourselves on being a family-oriented company and we are fortunate to have a group of talented, long-term employees to lead us into the future.

Please join us in congratulating Carl on his well-earned retirement.
