The International Powered Access Federation has announced Norty Turner is its new President, replacing Brad Boehler who it was previously thought would remain with the Association.
Boehler stepped down after leaving IPAF member company Skyjack last month. He holds a directorship with another IPAF member firm, Serious Labs, but it is not a member with full voting rights, so under IPAF’s operating rules it was determined he could no longer continue to serve on the board and as president of the federation.
IPAF said in a statement, ”Norty Turner has been named as the new President of the International Powered Access Federation (IPAF), after Brad Boehler decided to step down having recently left his role with IPAF member firm Skyjack.”
Turner was previously Deputy President of IPAF, and the news comes following a meeting of the IPAF Council ahead of the Europlatform conference in Nice, France. Karin Nars of Dinolift assumes the role of Deputy President and Karel Huijser of JLG is named IPAF Vice President.
Andy Studdert, IPAF’s interim CEO, said: “We’d like to thank Brad for all the work he’s done and wish him well in his future career. We’re pleased to welcome Norty, Karin and Karel into their new roles; IPAF will continue to promote the safe and effective use of powered access worldwide under the leadership of its updated presidential team.”
KHL will update this story as more information becomes available.
