Steve Filipov, president of Terex Cranes, will take on a new position as president, developing markets and strategic accounts for Terex. He will continue to report to Tom Riordan, Terex president and chief operating officer.

The move is one of several senior executive appointments made by Terex “in support of its strategy to increase its market presence in high growth markets around the globe.”
