Based in Sweden, Svensson reports to Lars Raagaard, Genie sales director Nordics for Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Iceland, Finland and the Baltics, Terex AWP. In this role, which Svensson assumed in January, he will support all Genie products and services.

He comes to Genie from Bruks Siwertell where he held the position of project and sales manager, Middle East and Russia.
“Anders’ port solutions and bulk handling business-to-business background, and 25 years of experience with international industrial clients, makes him the right person to complete our team of experts,” adds Raagaard. “He also has the approach that we expect as part of a team with a strong focus on customer responsiveness that has allowed us to develop good relationships and gain the loyalty of our regional distributors and customers.
“Furthermore, in a region where demand for new technologies is strong, we are confident that Anders’ open-minded approach will play a key role in supporting the specific needs of our Nordics customers,” Raagaard concluded.
