Ambulance Manufacturer Osage Ambulances Announces New President

Our longtime President, John Kehoe, has stepped down from this role effective in April.  John joined Osage in 1987 and became President/Majority Owner in 1992. John has guided Osage through a variety of ventures over his 30 years, including multiple expansions and development into one of the premier custom ambulance manufacturers in the country. A collective priority for John and his business partners at Osage is their commitment to keeping Osage Ambulances local and thriving in Central Missouri. Our organization is forever grateful to John for his leadership and he will continue as CEO. 

John has turned over the President role to Kyle Shimmens. Kyle fully embraces Osage’s commitment of keeping a high-quality ambulance manufacturer growing for many years to come. Kyle is originally from Central Missouri and after a background in sales, operations, supply chain, and manufacturing, he joined Osage in 2016 in a Sales & Marketing role. Kyle and his wife, Kelly, along with their 3 children have enjoyed being back in their hometown and part of the Osage family.

We are extremely excited about the future of Osage Ambulances. Our loyal employees are dedicated to providing the highest-quality, custom built ambulances to our Dealer-Partners, as well as EMS professionals throughout the United States.
