Terex AWP has appointed Buhan Okan Acar (Okan) to the newly created position of Genie sales manager for Turkey and the Caspian Sea region.
With an MBA in international business management from the University of Istanbul, and a Bachelors of Science in electronics from the Middle East University of Ankara, Okan first joined Terex in 2014 as a member of the Terex Financial Services (TFS) team in Turkey. In this role, he was responsible for customers across all Terex divisions in the region.
Prior to his two years with TFS, after holding roles of increasing levels of responsibility with two regional rental companies, Okan became general manager for a leading forklift rental company in Turkey.
“I’ve had the pleasure of working in close collaboration with Okan for the past two years. I have no doubt that his long experience and deep understanding of the rental business and local market make him the right person to support our customers in Turkey and the Caspian Sea region”, says Erik Geene, Genie senior director for strategic accounts and used equipment, Terex AWP. “In addition to his sales role, Okan will continue to provide sound financial advice and solutions that best fit our customers’ specific business needs.”
