Mike Cody has been kind enough to answer any and all questions related to used forklifts this month during our #DoosanDeepDive. When not keeping an eye on business at our Atlanta offices, Mike can be found instructing new members of our sales team to assisting customers with their growth goals.
“Tell us a little about your background, are you a UGA alum?”
No, I am originally from the Northeast and attended Rutgers University.
“The title of Eastern Regional Business Manager is quite impressive! Tell us a little about the journey that led you to Doosan Industrial Vehicles of America.”
I have been in the industry for 32 years with pretty much all of my prior experience being on the dealer side of things. I started as an aftermarket rep at a Clark Dealership in Richmond, VA. My last position prior to joining Doosan in 2016 was Executive V.P. at Eaheart Industrial Service where I was responsible for the day to day operations of their 3 forklift branches in VA.
“Out of all of the products Doosan Industrial Vehicles of America sells, which one do you still get excited to talk with a customer about? Why?”
The new warehouse products are the most exciting to discuss because they give us an opportunity to participate in high-volume deals.
“Sales can be a high-stress and high-stakes job. What is your favorite way to relax a bit at work when you get the chance?”
Being a remote employee doesn’t allow much of an opportunity to relax “at work”. When I am in the Buford Office I enjoy catching up with people and discussing how life is treating them
“College football is starting up, who do you root for?”
Primarily Notre Dame, but I like most teams from the Northeast.
“Let’s be honest, during the Pandemic we all got to spend some time in front of Netflix. What show did you enjoy the most during 2020?”
While not on Netflix, Yellowstone was my favorite binge-watch.
