Mayville adds former Caterpillar exec to board

Mayville Engineering Company Inc. announced today that Steve Fisher has been elected to its board of directors.

Fisher recently retired from his role as vice president of the large power systems and growth markets division at Caterpillar Inc. He spent 36 years at the Peoria, Ill.-based global construction and mining equipment manufacturer, during which time Fisher was integral to acquisitions of rail, mining and energy companies.

In his role, Fisher was responsible for strategic and product planning, product development and manufacturing oversight. Fisher, who holds a bachelor’s degree from Bradley University and a CPA designation, also helped grow Caterpillar’s remanufacturing arm globally.

“I’m pleased to have Steve join our board and bring his thought leadership and experience with him,” said Robert Kamphuis, chairman, president and chief executive officer of MEC. “Steve has extraordinary business and financial expertise. I look forward to having him share his strategic guidance and leadership on our board.”

Mayville-based MEC provides a variety of manufacturing services for original equipment manufacturers. It has 16 facilities in Wisconsin, Michigan, Mississippi, South Carolina and Virginia.

“Joining the board of directors at MEC is an exciting opportunity for me and I look forward to sharing my experiences and contributing to the future direction and growth of the company,” Fisher said. “I’m impressed with the unique employee-owned culture at the company, combined with the tremendous focus on customer success and value creation that is at the heart of MEC’s mission.”
