Boehler Named Skyjack President

Brad Boehler has been appointed interim president of Canadian lift manufacturer Skyjack.

Boehler joined Skyjack in 2003 and until recently was vice president of engineering. Earlier this year he stepped up in the organization and added the role of vice president of sales and marketing to his duties.

"Brad's leadership will include focused efforts on product quality, customer responsiveness and product offering as the industry is poised for growth," Linamar President Jim Jarrell is quoted. "His extensive knowledge of Skyjack's business structure makes him well positioned to spearhead an aggressive business plan of new product development and global expansion which will target expanding market potential encompassing North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia and Australia."

Boehler added: "We have launched a very aggressive product development plan which will roll out in concert with our expanding global footprint including sales offices with service and support in China, Brazil and Australia."

Boehler started his career at the Canadian Forces School of Military Engineering as a military engineer. In 2006, he was appointed chairman of the ANSI A92.6 subcommittee responsible for the U.S. standard for Self-Propelled Elevating Work Platforms and also currently chairs of the International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) Manufacturer's Technical Committee.
