Westport, Conn.-based Terex Corp. last week announced that Robert Isaman will join the company as president of Terex Construction effective Jan. 2, 2007. Isaman will be based in Westport and will report directly to Tom Riordan, who will also be joining Terex as president and chief operating officer in January.
“I am pleased to welcome Bob Isaman to Terex, where his proven industrial sales, operations and general management skills will be a great addition to our management team,” said Ronald DeFeo, Terex chairman and CEO. “Bob’s international experience in the Asia Pacific region and Russia, as well as his track record with lean manufacturing initiatives, will allow him to become a key contributor to the future success of Terex. The Terex management team is a strong one and Bob will add some additional dimensions to our team that are particularly needed at this point in time.”
