Kelly Marshall

Charlie O’Brien will be retiring from his position of senior vice president at the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) later this year. O’Brien has been with AEM since 2007. He will be working with President Dennis Slater to begin phasing out of his position in order to spend more time with his family and a family business.

“I care a great deal about the continued success of AEM and AEM’s Ag Services, both domestically and internationally, so I want to make sure we have a very smooth transition,” O’Brien said. “As I work through the details of the transition with Dennis, and as a successor is named, we will finalize the actual date of my retirement.”

“Charlie has played a critical, strategic role in elevating Ag sector programs and services during his tenure with AEM,” Slater said. “Obviously he will be missed. During the next few months, we will put together a plan to ensure that we cover the many leadership roles Charlie held with industry organizations.”

O’Brien and Slater will be working together to determine his official last day.
