Houston-based Global Crane Sales recently appointed Ed Gibson its sales manager for North America and Latin America. As North American and Latin American sales manager, Gibson is in charge of developing sales strategies, goals and future planning for the company’s line of Zoomlion cranes.

Gibson joined the Global team in July 2009 after spending much of his career as a district manager with Link-Belt. He has helped shape the philosophy of Global Crane Sales by bringing insight into the expectations and demands of customers. Matched by 25 years of experience in the crane industry, along with an understanding of the market, trends and audience, Gibson’s expertise has been invaluable in the design of Global’s full line of rough terrain and crawler cranes, the company said.

Global Crane Sales, in partnership with Zoomlion, offers full lines of rough terrain and crawler cranes that meet ANSI and CE standards.
