Michael Maloney II, Universal Lubricants director of government accounts and strategic sales, has been appointed to the Independent Lubricant Manufacturers Association (ILMA) board of directors.
Maloney’s appointment makes him the third generation in his family to serve on ILMA’s governing board. His father, Mike Maloney, served as president from 1995-96 and his great grandfather, C.V. Maloney, was president from 1958-60.
“It’s always wonderful to have young executives become active in the organization,” says ILMA Executive Director Celeste Powers. “We’re excited to have Michael join our board this year, and appreciate the energy and fresh voice he brings to our leadership.”
Maloney has been involved in ILMA and active in the industry for more than 10 years. He began his Universal Lubricants career as a part-time employee during his high school years and joined the company as a lubricant sales representative shortly after receiving a degree in Business Administration from Wichita State University.
Prior to his current position, which involves selling multiple product lines produced at Universal Lubricants’ state-of-the-art re-refinery in Wichita, Kan., Maloney served as a heavy duty sales representative, technical services manager and regional sales manager for the company’s Central Region.
“Environmental stewardship is a key ILMA mission and I look forward to sharing best practices of the Universal Lubricants’ closed loop system with fellow board members and peers in the industry,” says Maloney.
