MCG names global product managers

20 March 2008

Staff changes at Manitowoc Crane Group include the appointment of three new global product managers. David Havard is global product manager for Potain tower and self erecting cranes; Neil Hollingshead is global product manager for Grove all terrain and rough terrain mobile cranes; and Ruben Olivas Saunders, global product manager for Grove truck cranes and National Crane boom trucks. The three join Raman Joshi, global product manager of Manitowoc crawler cranes, in representing the company's full product line.

“Our global product managers will complement our existing product managers. They will ensure that new and existing cranes meet global market needs and fulfill our company objectives,” said Bob Hund, MCG vice president of marketing.

Havard most recently served as product manager for Potain self-erecting cranes, while Hollingshead is returning to MCG. He previously served as product manager for Grove all terrains. Saunders most recently served as sales manager for Potain in Central and South America. Joshi has been in his position since 2006.

The global product management team will work closely with regional management, ensuring both local and global requirements are met for existing and new product development projects, according to the company.
