Industry expert with focus on innovation and transformation takes on key position...
DEVELON, formerly known as Doosan Construction Equipment, has filled an important new position.
Effective 1st March 2023, Andreas M. Lohner took over the function of Sales Manager for Germany, Austria and Switzerland (DACH) as well as Eastern Europe. Now, with effect from 1st June 2023, he has additionally been appointed as Managing Director DEVELON Germany of the newly founded company, HD Hyundai Infracore Deutschland GmbH, based in Mannheim. With these decisions, DEVELON is sending out clear signals and investing consistently and continuously in Germany as a major business location.
Andreas M. Lohner can already look back on a very successful career in the construction machinery industry. Born in Franconia, he was responsible for a number of management functions in the areas of sales, marketing and digital business at the Wacker Neuson Group for over a decade. Among other things, he was Managing Director of Wacker Neuson Sales Germany for many years and is familiar with hybrid sales networks (dealer sales, direct sales with own branches and e-business). Most recently, he was responsible for global corporate marketing and digital business, including training centres, for Wacker Neuson, Kramer and Weidemann.
Prior to that, Andreas M. Lohner gained more than ten years of extensive management experience as a member of the leadership circle in a renowned management consultancy in the successful realisation of growth and change projects in renowned family-owned companies and in the upper medium-sized business sector.
"We are delighted to have Andreas Lohner, a proven industry expert, at DEVELON. He brings an excellent track record and shares our passion for digitally driven innovation. At the same time, we would like to thank Hans-Joachim Erdmann, who was in charge of the DACH region on a transitional basis last year," says Gilles Bendaoud, Vice President Sales for DEVELON Europe.
Andreas M. Lohner is looking forward to the creative task: "DEVELON, formerly best known as DOOSAN, has an excellent reputation with its solutions in the industry with many real fans. And when I think of our innovations that will reach market maturity in the coming years, the customers will be thrilled. Like, for example, our innovations with the patented transparent wheel loader bucket - simply a brilliant solution that significantly increases work safety.
"Together with our dealers, we will also strike out in new directions while maintaining a balance between continuity and partnership-based exchange at eye level, always with our customers at the centre of all our considerations, so that added value is created."
The new DEVELON brand - formerly DOOSAN - was officially launched worldwide in March 2023 during the CON-EXPO-CON/AGG show in Las Vegas.
