Genie names new manager for EMEA region

DUBAI, January 3, 2018

Terex Corporation, a global manufacturer of lifting and material processing products, has announced that John Chandler is rejoining the Genie team where, based in the UK, he will take over as the strategic accounts and business development manager for Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Russia (EMEAR) region.

The existing Genie UK and Ireland sales structure remains unchanged, said a statement from the company.

Reporting to Jacco de Kluijver, Genie vice-president sales and marketing for Emear, Terex AWP, in this newly created role Chandler is directly responsible for the development of some strategic Genie customer accounts.

Working in close collaboration with Matt Skipworth, Genie senior manager service solutions, Terex AWP, he will also be responsible for supporting the development of the Genie Service Solutions (GSS) offering.

“It has always been a pleasure to work with John, and we are very glad to have him back on the team,” says de Kluijver.

“His skills and experience go without saying. For Genie, customer service is a top priority. With his level of understanding of the market, our customers’ business challenges, and Genie products and services, I have every confidence that John’s multi-facetted abilities will add value to our customer sales and service offering,” he remarked.  

In his new role, Chandler will be supporting Genie Service Solutions (GSS). This bespoke service offering is designed to help customers rise to today’s market challenges by providing them the ability to manage their fleets more efficiently.

On the appointment, Chandler said: "I’m delighted to be back! Genie is a true global OEM market leader that offers a level of product quality and innovation second to none. I’m also looking forward to rejoining the team and working in an environment where direct contact with customers is valued as the foundation of every business relationship."

"As illustrated by a recent series of strategic acquisitions, today’s European market is highly competitive. As a result, for many rental companies, consolidating their business success in the long-term is a key concern," he stated.

"Furthermore, at a time when safety standards and technology are at a higher level than ever before, skilled technical resources are few and far between," stated Chandler.

"Keeping machines properly maintained and safe to operate is an increasing issue, and it is alarming to see that contrary to what should be expected, standards are slipping," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
