Manitowoc Crane Group last week named three new global product managers: David Havard, for Potain tower and self-erecting cranes; Neil Hollingshead, for Grove all-terrain and rough-terrain mobile cranes; and Ruben Olivas Saunders, for Grove truck cranes and National Crane boom trucks.
“Our global product managers will complement our existing product managers,” said Bob Hund, MCB’s vice president of marketing. “They will ensure that new and existing cranes meet global market needs and fulfill our company objectives. These individuals were chosen because of their knowledge of global market dynamics. Their job is to synthesize regional strategies into a global vision and work with product and marketing management to offer our customers the most innovative lifting equipment on a global basis.”
Havard most recently served as product manager for Potain self-erecting cranes, while Hollingshead returns to MCG after serving as product manager for Grove all-terrain mobile cranes. Olivas Saunders most recently served as sales manager for Potain in Central and South America.
