Burger has led international sales at Link-Belt Cranes since 2008, and also managed Link-Belt government sales since 2014. Burger began his career at Link-Belt in 1982 with the telescopic crane manufacturing management team. He moved to employee relations manager, then to telescopic crane product manager before becoming a district sales manager covering the Southeastern United States.

“For the past 15 years, Roy has been the face of Link-Belt’s international business and a worthy ambassador of the Link-Belt brand in the international arena,” said Bill Stramer, senior vice-president of marketing, sales and customer support. “Roy formed long-lasting relationships across the globe. We very much appreciate all of Roy’s year’s dedicated service for Link-Belt Cranes and wish him the very best in his retirement.”

Effective January 1, 2023, and following Burger’s retirement, Pat Collins, director of product marketing will now oversee Link-Belt’s international sales business in addition to his current responsibilities. Kelly Fiechter has been named product manager for rough terrain cranes and will take on the responsibility of government sales. Brian Elkins will transfer to product manager of lattice crawler and telescopic crawler cranes.
