Compact equipment manufacturer Takeuchi-US, has introduced Todd Granger as director of dealer sales, effective immediately. Based out of Takeuchi-US headquarters in Pendergrass, Ga., Granger will be responsible for all sales activity through the company’s North American dealer sales channel.

Granger brings more than 10 years of rental and construction industry experience to this position, including prior employment with Takeuchi as a regional business manager.

“I am excited to be back at Takeuchi among many colleagues I have known and have great respect for,” Granger said. “As evidenced by the company’s growth over the last few years, Takeuchi is thriving, and I am looking forward to being part of this growth and working with a strong dealer network.”

Most recently, Granger served as the vice president at APT, an Atlas Copco company, where he oversaw sales, marketing and customer service functions. He has a Business Administration degree from the University of North Georgia.

“Todd will be a huge part of continuing our investment and focusing on growing our dealer sales,” said Clay Eubanks, president of Takeuchi-US. “We are very excited to have him back with us. Not only does Todd have the necessary experience to do well in this role, but his previous time here should make for a seamless transition.”

The move comes after former director of dealer sales, Kim Robinson, was appointed to a newly created position at Takeuchi as director of dealer development.
