CARGOTEC CORPORATION, TRADE PRESS RELEASE, 7 AUGUST 2017 AT 11 AM EEST
Hiab, part of Cargotec, has appointed Hans Ekman as Vice President, Forestry & Recycling Cranes as of 14 August 2017. He will report to Joakim Andersson, head of Hiab's Cranes Business Line, and be part of the Cranes Leadership Team. Hans is located in Raisio, Finland.
"Hans has worked for Hiab's Demountables Business Line since 2001 in several roles, most recently as Director for Sales & Product Business Management in Demountables. Hans has gained excellent and versatile business and industry knowledge and has great leadership skills. I am very delighted to have Hans join the Cranes team to ensure that under his leadership we continue on the successful path with strong focus on growing Hiab's forestry and recycling business," says Joakim Andersson.
"Over the last years, Hiab has regained a strong position in the forestry cranes segment with its renowned LOGLIFT and JONSERED brands. This opens up new business opportunities within and beyond forestry, and has positioned Hiab again as a pioneer with the ground-breaking HiVisionTM control system. As an independent business unit, the Forestry & Recycling Business Line will continue to aim for further growth in these important business segments for Hiab," says Hans Ekman.
Hans Ekman succeeds in this position Jon Lopez, who decided to continue his career outside of Hiab.
