Terex appoints new general manager of rough terrain cranes

Giancarlo Montanari has been appointed as general manager of Terex rough terrain cranes, with effect from 1 February 2022. He will be responsible for all functions within the business, and will report directly to Kieran Hegarty, president of Terex segment MP.

“With this new structure, our goals are set on focusing on the individual strengths of each crane business to best suite their own unique brands,” said Terex Cranes.

Prior to this appointment, Mr Montanari served as Terex’s business line leader of rough terrain cranes. He is an “experienced manager” and a “natural choice” to lead a new focused strategy for the rough terrain cranes business, according to Terex Cranes. “His focus and drive will for sure contribute to the success of the business unit.”

“I am honoured to have this opportunity, I really believe in our products and organisation. This market is a competitive one, but we believe we are shaping our future to be an important brand for years to come,” said Mr Montanari.

“The premium materials, modern technology and unique optimisation of our cranes make us stand out from the crowd. This added to the uniqueness of the brands, and their target-driven focus on being best-in-class is what makes us the first choice.”

Terex Cranes stressed that the “continuation of existing relationships is of the utmost importance” to its entire team. “We want to take this opportunity of change within our structure to re-focus our efforts and build upon the successes that we have already achieved.”
