Burnside’s journey as the Vice President & General Manager of Tooling Operations began in October of 2018, but his stellar leadership did not start there. Over 20 years ago, his vision to open a premier source for tooling to companies across the world was realized. As with any start up, this venture was not easy in the beginning. But his will, determination and dedication fostered growth beyond his imagination and a reputation of excellence. Now Burnside brings those experiences to CMI along with a desire to contribute to the overall future of the company and continued successes for the facility he has nurtured since its inception.
