Allison Transmission Announces Retirement Of Senior Vice President Michael Headly

first_imgAllison Transmission Holdings Inc. announced the retirement of Michael Headly, senior vice president for global marketing, sales and service, effective March 31, 2016. His successor will be named at a future date.AdvertisementClick Here to Read MoreAdvertisement“Mike has been instrumental in developing our business around the world over the past 30 years,” said Lawrence Dewey, chairman, president and CEO of Allison Transmission. “His commitment to growing sales was manifest in his tireless efforts.”Headly is retiring after 29 years of service to General Motors Co. and subsequently Allison. He began his career in 1986 as a zone manager with GM’s Military Vehicle Operations in Warren, Michigan. He joined Allison in 1988 in the Washington, D.C., office, calling on the U.S. government, including the military. Headly relocated to Indianapolis in 1991 and continued in that role.In the years that followed, Headly served in a variety of roles including as program manager for what is today known as the 3000/4000 Series, manager of industrial engineering, director of defense programs, and director of sales for North America. In 1997, Headly was named managing director for Allison’s marketing, sales, service and product distribution activities in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. His role expanded to include regions of Asia Pacific in 1999 and Latin America in 2000.“Mike developed his plans, and then worked them methodically to generate the desired results,” said Dewey. “He has taken assignments that I have held during my career, and taken them to new levels of results.”AdvertisementHeadly was promoted in 2008 to vice president of marketing, sales and service for all activities outside of North America. He was promoted to senior vice president of global marketing, sales and service in 2014. “Over the years, many people have commented that Mike’s stamina, given the rigors of his schedule, was truly remarkable,” said Dewey. “Not many could have covered the ground, figuratively and literally, that Mike has covered over the past couple decades – and I’m not sure if anyone else could have done it as successfully.” Headly attended the U.S. Military Academy, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in engineering. He earned a master’s degree in industrial engineering from Penn State University.“I wish Mike and his family all the best in his well-earned retirement,” said Dewey.last_img read more

‘Back the Blue Rally’ Organizer Reveals Identity After Backlash

first_imgKenny Oliver is the man behind the “Back the Blue Rally” slated for Saturday, September 5 in Southampton Village. IndyEastEnd.com/Taylor K. VecseyWhen the “Back the Blue Rally” was first announced for September 5 in Southampton Village the organizer chose to not to release his name given safety concerns. But because of comments on social media that aligned the rally to a white nationalist hate group, he decided to come forward in an effort to quell any misconceptions.His name is Kenny Oliver and he is a former police officer who worked for the New York City Police Department and the Southampton Town Police Department, before retiring about a decade ago.Oliver, who lives in North Sea and sat down for an interview on Saturday, said that after the response on social media, he thought about calling off the rally, but ultimately, “I didn’t want to cancel for the military and the law enforcement.”The rally was meant as an opportunity to show support for police officers after a divisive summer. It is coined “Back the Blue,” but it is not just to support law enforcement, who have been subjected to “so much anti, hate-rhetoric,” he said, but also the military. He feels horrible that Memorial Day could not be observed as it usually is because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and suspects the same may be true for Veterans Day come November. “All I want to say is thank you,” he said.Some suggested the organizer was connected to a white nationalist hate group because of the email address on the rally’s flyer — PatriotsofAmerica@aol.com. He said he created the email address just for organizing the rally so that he did not have to give out his personal address. When he went to make one, he said he had a hard time finding something that was not already taken. “There was nothing that even came close to ‘Back the Blue’ or ‘support the military’ at AOL,” he explained. “I wanted Patriots of America because, like I say, I consider myself a patriot.”Only four people ever even reached out to him through the email address, two of whom were reporters, he said. Those on social media just have “a preconceived notion of who was running it and how bad it was going to be.”Those who know him know his intent, he said. “What’s the worst thing [they can say]?,” he said, “‘He voted for Trump and he drinks beer’,” he said with a laugh. “My reputation speaks for himself.”Kenny Oliver served as a police officer with the NYPD and the Southampton Town police. IndyEastEnd.com/Taylor K. VecseyOliver, a transit cop with the NYPD, worked in East New York, Bedford-Stuyvesant and Brownsville for 13 years, starting in the late 1980s. Those were rough neighborhoods then, during the height of the crack epidemic when crime was prevalent and the recidivism rates were high. He recalled a woman coming off the train at New Lots Avenue stopped and said to him, “‘Thank you for being here.’ That means everything in the world, man.”After September 11, he spent 10 months at Ground Zero as part of the search and recovery effort. The following year, in October 2002, he joined Southampton Town police as a patrol officer.“I did the job. I walked the beat. I walked in these people’s shoes who are getting them launched at them right now,” he said.Oliver grew up in Oyster Bay, but his family spent summers in North Sea, where his grandfather developed property. He still lives in that neighborhood, which he made his home after taking the job on the South Fork. He has been a fire department volunteer for 30 years, between his time with the fire departments in Oyster Bay and North Sea.Oliver has also been a member of the Masonic Lodge, the Moose Lodge, Elks Lodge, and Knights of Columbus organizations, but he emphatically denies being a member of any hate group.“I never thought it was going to get to this point. I was just trying to get a little rally together,” he said.If he canceled the rally, he was afraid agitators may show up anyway, and then it could get out of hand. “I was dreading a kid, something bad happening to anybody, but a child? That’s worst my fear,” he said. He hopes that by revealing his identity, “It will slow what could have potentially been a real bad problem.”Oliver reiterated what he told IndyEastEnd.com earlier this month: that the rally is not meant to be political. “We’re not protesting anything,” he said, adding it is not meant as a counter protest — several protests in line with the Black Lives Matter movement took place on the South Fork after George Floyd’s death in late May, all of which were peaceful. He said he believes in the right to protest and saw that the police stood by during one in Southampton Village to ensure protestors were safe.Those attending the “Back the Blue Rally” on Saturday, September 5 will gather at Agawam Park at 11 a.m., where there will be a brief introduction, followed by a blessing. The Pledge of Allegiance will be recited and the National Anthem sung. The group will then march down Windmill Lane, where it will turn right on Jagger Lane, and turn on Main Street, before going down Jobs Lane and wind up back at Agawam Park.He encourages people to bring American flags, blue-line flags, military flags, and/or wear blue.“This is peaceful,” Oliver said. “Let’s all do the loop, disperse, and have a good day.”taylor@indyeastend.com Sharelast_img read more

LDS also provides transport and logistics services to its freight forwarding customers within the UAE.LDS serves the import, export and transshipment requirements of industrial and infrastructure customers throughout the UAE, with strong volumes in the key European and Asian trade lanes.The purchase is the third significant expansion for the Toll Group, despite the hard economic times this year.  In June, the group reached agreement for the purchase of 1000f the shares in Perkins Group Holdings, the parent of the Perkins Shipping Group.

Stopgap spending bill to be unveiled as Congress finishes up

first_img SHARE Stopgap spending bill to be unveiled as Congress finishes up Published: December 6, 2016 5:08 AM EST WASHINGTON (AP) – Congress is quickening its pace toward adjourning late this week, marching toward a final vote on legislation boosting medical research and speeding drug approvals and readying a separate stopgap spending bill to prevent the government from shutting down this weekend.The temporary budget bill, scheduled to be unveiled Tuesday, would keep federal agencies functioning into next spring, giving the new Congress and the incoming Trump administration time to approve more than $1 trillion to fund federal agencies through the Sept. 30 end of the current government budget year.Current spending expires at midnight on Friday. Since the measure is the only absolute must-do bill before Congress adjourns, it’s likely to carry several add-ons, including flood relief, money for overseas military operations, and help for Flint, Mich., to fix its lead-tainted water system.Other possibilities include language to help speed a congressional waiver required next year to confirm retired Gen. James Mattis as secretary of defense and temporary help to maintain health benefits for retired members of the United Mine Workers. Lawmakers will again deny themselves a cost-of-living pay hike that’s fallen out of favor.The overall measure would keep the government running through April 28.The Senate, meanwhile, appears on track Tuesday to pass the $6.3 billion biomedical bill, which includes a $1.8 billion cancer research “moonshot” strongly supported by Vice President Joe Biden, whose son Beau died of the disease, as well as $1 billion over two years to prevent and treat abuse of opioids and other addictive drugs like heroin. The nearly 1,000-page package cleared the House overwhelmingly last week, with strong backing from President Barack Obama. It contains a long-overdue overhaul of federal mental health programs.Biden presided over the Senate during an 85-13 procedural tally on Monday and a final vote is expected Tuesday despite opposition from liberals like Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., who complained that the bill would make it easier for politically well-connected pharmaceutical and medical device industries to win federal approval for their products while raising risks to consumers.Also Monday, negotiators wrapped up talks on a massive water projects bill that also contains a controversial package of provisions that wades into a complex, longstanding battle over allocating California’s water resources. House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., and Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein brokered the accord, which, among other steps, aims to offer relief to farmers and farm communities suffering from the state’s longstanding drought.But California’s other Democratic senator, Barbara Boxer, ripped the accord, charging that it would harm drinking water quality and severely weaken the Endangered Species Act, threatening salmon and other species. Boxer is retiring and vowed to filibuster the legislation as her last major act in office.The stopgap spending measure is needed because of a deadlock between Republicans controlling Congress and the Obama administration over spending levels for the Pentagon and a number of other issues, including opposition from conservatives to advancing a huge “omnibus” spending package in the post-election lame-duck session.The incoming Trump administration and House GOP leaders are also hopeful of winning increases to the Pentagon budget for the ongoing fiscal year in the early months of calendar 2017.For now, the stopgap measure is serving as an engine to tow $170 million to help Flint, Michigan, repair its aging water system to prevent its water from being poisoned with lead. Other items include about $4 billion to help Louisiana and other states rebuild from floods and other natural disasters, and money to partially meet the Obama administration’s $11.6 billion request last month for war-related money.center_img Do you see a typo or an error?

Pro bono group expands to Wales

first_imgThe solicitors’ pro bono group LawWorks has been awarded £180,000 of lottery funding to expand its service across Britain and set up LawWorks Cymru in Wales. The charity heard last week that the Big Lottery Fund will provide the funding over the next three years enabling it to employ two staff to work to raise awareness of pro bono work in Wales and provide support to those offering it. It will also work with the Disability Law Services to give legal help to clients. LawWorks chief executive Rebecca Hilsenrath said the funding is the result of months of hard work and collaboration between a ‘broad coalition’ of stakeholders including the Law Society, the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives, the bar and Cardiff Law School. She said the initiative is a response to the perception of a shortfall in legal services in Wales and a desire by the third sector and law firms for more pro bono support. ‘We will be working as soon as possible to make the project a reality and hope to set up a pilot that will lead to a sustainable project,’ she said.last_img read more
