ZWEIBRÜCKEN – September 6, 2018 – Effective August 1, 2018, Guntram Jakobs has been appointed Director Customer Support, Terex Cranes Mobile Cranes for Europe, Middle East, Africa and Russia (EMEAR). The recruitment decision was made against the background of the company’s global Execute-to-Win strategy, with which Terex Cranes aims to regain its global leadership position in the industry. Terex Cranes has defined customer focus as an essential part of this strategic orientation: “Our goal is to become the industry benchmark in this area,” says Thomas Schramm, Terex Cranes Vice President for Sales & Service Mobile Cranes in the EMEAR region and responsible for the Demag brand worldwide, summing up his company’s mission.

In this role, he spent several years in various customer support positions in both Europe and the USA, including three years as Head of Service at the Charleston office.
