Ingo Schiller joins Tadano

Ingo Schiller has joined Tadano America as executive vice president reporting to president Yo Kakinuma.

Kakinuma plans to return to Japan next year at which point Schiller would take over as president. He joins the company after six months or so working as a lifting industry consultant, following his departure from Manitowoc where he spent five years in a number of positions, including global marketing and new product development, executive vice president of the Crane Care business and most recently as senior vice president of boom truck, Rough Terrain, industrial, and military cranes.

He joined Manitowoc in 2011 after 15 years with Liebherr, originally with Schiller Service Corp the Liebherr crane distributor. When Liebherr took over the Schiller business, he transferred, becoming executive vice president of sales.

Tadano’s cranes are widely held as the highest in quality and known for their excellent reliability. I look forward to working with the Tadano America team to further increase market share and expand product development.”
