Manitowoc has appointed Elias Chakour and Keith Crider as regional business managers overseeing sales of Manitowoc crawler cranes and Grove mobile cranes. Chakour’s territory is the Southeast region of the United States; Crider’s is the Northeast region of the U.S. and Canada.
In their new roles, both will work closely with Manitowoc dealers in their regions. They report to David Hull, Manitowoc’s vice president of sales for North America, who said both will add valuable experience to the sales team.
“We are very fortunate to have people of Elias’ and Keith’s experience and reputation move into these very important roles,” he said. “Their technical knowledge, background in sales and support and unique experiences make them a valuable addition to the sales team.”
Chakour has more than 20 years experience in the construction equipment industry, most recently serving as regional sales manager for the LBX Company, covering the Northeast Region.
Crider brings almost 30 years of Manitowoc experience to his new position. Prior to this most recent appointment, he was director of service operations at Manitowoc Crane Care where his role included the development of Latin America’s Crane Care organization.
The Manitowoc Co. is an international provider of lifting equipment for the global construction industry, including lattice-boom cranes, tower cranes, mobile telescopic cranes and boom trucks.
