Link-Belt Cranes has appointed Gary Plasencia as district sales manager for the north eastern United States and eastern provinces of Canada.
He joins the company following two and a half years as a territory manager with Grove, Potain and Manitowoc dealer Stephenson Equipment, based at its branch in Albany, New York. He began his crane career in 2012 with Link-Belt dealer Wood CRW, which covers Pennsylvania, New York and Vermont, where he was a territory manager for the best part of eight years, leaving for Stephenson just as the Covid pandemic struck in March 2020.
North American sales manager Gary Lane said: “Gary’s crane knowledge and understanding aligns with the needs of our distributor network. He has been heavily involved in both retail and finance side of this business and will be a familiar face for many of our U.S. and Canadian distributors. We are excited to have Gary onboard.”
