“I am truly honored to have the opportunity to follow Ingo in this role,” said Barley. “He has been instrumental in developing Tadano America to the great company it is today and the Pan-America region into the success that we are now enjoying.”

Ingo Schiller will be taking on a new role within company headquarters. He has been promoted to the position of chief marketing officer of Tadano, Ltd., where he will be responsible for all global marketing activities for the Tadano Group of companies. Schiller will also remain involved with the operations in the Pan-American region as a director of the U.S. entity that holds both Tadano America Corp. and Tadano Mantis Corp.

He started his career as a service technician and engineer in the United Kingdom, work that took him across Europe, Africa and the Americas. He joined Terex in 1996, working in a variety of roles until two years ago when Tadano acquired Demag.
