LGMG North America has hired Eric Liner as senior vice president of national accounts. Liner has spent more than 20 years in the construction equipment industry, almost exclusively with access and material handling equipment manufacturers. He has held a variety of positions during his career, having started with Genie in the late 90’s during the initial industry consolidation. He accepted and excelled in a territory sales manager position with Skyjack while being responsible for developing 15 states/provinces in the Pacific Northwest and Western Canada.
Liner was promoted to several sales leadership positions within Skyjack, as regional vice president, west and vice president of sales, North America. His most recent position was executive vice president, Americas, responsible for all of Skyjacks’ commercial business activities in North, Central, and South America, encompassing sales, financial services, product support and aftermarket parts teams.
Liner has been married for 20 years and has a daughter entering her senior year in high school. He said about himself: “Anyone who knows me or who has worked with me would suggest I’m an extremely competitive person, which I characterize as being a work hard, play hard kind of guy. I love golfing, sadly most days it doesn’t love me back. I’m an avid saltwater and river fisherman and on the days I’m not ‘catching’ I just enjoy being on the water.”
As Liner is just starting with LGMG, he would suggest the most exciting part of joining the team is the fact that the business is in a very early stage of development/growth and, “I’m looking forward to recreating the same success I’ve had in previous positions!”
LGMG North America is delighted to welcome such a veteran of the aerial industry to the team and look forward to seeing what new heights he can accomplish in his new role of senior vice president of national accounts.
