Sturgeon Bay Wis.-based Marine Travelift yesterday announced the appointment of Kurt Minten to executive vice president. With 36 years of service, he is the company’s longest-tenured employee, according to a statement.

Minten worked in Travelift’s internal engineering team from 1986 to 2005, when he joined the company’s sales force. As the company expanded its industrial division, he was head of carry deck crane sales before being promoted to director of Shuttlelift sales, handling Marine Travelift contracts, as well. Prior to his recent promotion, he was vice president of sales.

“[Minten] is the epitome of a team player and is as professional as they come,” Marine Travelift president and CEO Erich Pfeifer said in the statement. “He takes the time to talk and get to know everyone he comes across, and leaves a lasting impression on customers and co-workers alike. … We look forward to having him in this new role for the years to come.”
