Terex AWP Genie National Sales Manager Kurt Kinder says he is delighted to have made the new appointments from within his existing management team.

Mike is an excellent appointment for this new role, noted Kinder, because he has cut his teeth in the access equipment industry in Australia and New Zealand.

"Mike is not a commercial broker or a banker but comes to the new role with a deep understanding of our customers, their businesses, equipment financing and cash flow needs, as well as in-depth knowledge of how the market works," he says.

"A career banker won’t have this level of hands-on industry experience. In contrast, Mike has significant equipment financing exposure through his roles with Genie and Youngman Richardson & Co (YRCO).

"I’m so excited about the potential of TFS to be a valuable finance partner for our Genie customers and ensuring they never miss out on securing the very best AWP equipment available."

 Kinder is also thrilled to appoint James Millen, who originally joined Genie as a Field Service Officer in December 2007, into the Sales Manager role.

"With the NSW government's proposing an $87 billion four-year infrastructure pipeline[i] we need an experienced hand who can work with our growing client base throughout the entire product lifecycle, from purchase through to repair or replacement.

"As Customer Support Manager for NSW/ACT, James demonstrated he has excellent communication, and project management skills.

"He led the Genie field service team superbly from our facility in Glendenning and is the best candidate to join our sales team in NSW."

Terex Corporation is a global manufacturer of lifting and material processing products and services delivering lifecycle solutions that maximize customer return on investment. Major Terex brands include Terex, Genie and Powerscreen.
