Sheehan has been with Eriez since 2011, serving most recently as Sales Director for the company’s Canadian office.
“Tim’s knowledge of the minerals market will help accelerate Eriez-India’s growth in the traditional mining market,” says Kohmuench. “In addition, his management capabilities, interpersonal skills and sales experience will help Eriez-India grow domestically while becoming a stronger intercompany contributor,” he adds.
Sheehan earned a bachelor’s degree in mining and mineral engineering from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech) in 2001. He began his career at Unimin Corp. as a Senior Process Engineer before joining the Eriez team in 2011 as Lab Manager at the company’s headquarters in Erie, Penn. Sheehan then emigrated to Canada in 2012 to work as a Senior Process Engineer for Eriez-Flotation in Vancouver, British Columbia. Over the next several years he moved into the Eriez Canadian sales department, which he led prior to this most recent promotion to Eriez-India Managing Director.
According to Kohmuench, Sheehan will relocate from Canada and operate from Eriez' Chennai, India facility.
