New sales EMEA team increases customer focus for Manitowoc

3/2/2011 Manitowoc, Wisconsin, United States

Manitowoc has announced a new sales leadership structure for EMEA operations that will allow it to focus more closely on individual markets. The company will now divide its EMEA sales activities into three distinct regions, each with its own vice president of sales. The regions are as follows:

• Western Europe, with Christophe Simoncelli as vice president of sales. This region will cover France, Benelux, Iberica, Italy and other southern European countries
• Central and Eastern Europe, with Klaus Kroeppel as vice president of sales. This region will cover Germany, Switzerland, Austria, the UK and Ireland, Scandinavia, Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and the CIS countries. It also includes Turkey for sales of Grove mobile cranes
• Middle East and Africa, with David Semple as vice president of sales. This region will cover the Middle East and Africa.

Each of the new vice presidents of sales will report to Philippe Cohet, executive vice president for Manitowoc in EMEA. He said the new structure leaves Manitowoc in better position as the world economy recovers.

“We are cautiously optimistic about the prospects for 2011 and we feel that more than ever it is important for us to get closer to our customers,” he said. “With this new structure it will be easier for customers to do business with Manitowoc and it leaves us better placed to take advantage of the upcoming business recovery.”
