Robertson quits Terex
Colin Robertson has resigned as executive vice president of operations at Terex a year after he was appointed to the role.
Prior to that Robertson was president of Terex Construction and before that president of Terex Europe, which at that time included cranes.
In November 2005 Robertson was appointed to his current role, responsible for “implementing world-class capability in supply chain management, logistics and global purchasing, as well as for improving manufacturing facility utilisation around the world. He was also to play a key role in Terex's China initiatives and the implementation of its Oracle computer system throughout the company".
Robertson, who is British by birth, has been with Terex for 12 years having started out with Cummins Engine and then Case.
Robertson will remain with the company until April assisting with the transition.
This departure is no surprise given that a spate of new appointments at Terex HQ seemed to sideline Robertson.
The appointment of Robert Isaman on December 15th, as president of Terex Construction reporting directly to new president, Tom Riordan may well have been the final straw?
