"Today I want to extend my gratitude to Barry. I am pleased that he will continue to work with us to support our customers. Together with Frank Bardonaro, Terex Cranes vice president and managing director global sales, the team will build upon Barry's legacy," Bradley continued.

Barnes said, "I have been in the crane industry for nearly 50 years, and it is a very interesting feeling and emotion, as I remember my very first day at work with the company and many landmarks 'til this point. I have been fortunate to represent superior products, and work for some great people and colleagues. I still have a lot of ideas to improve the business and look forward to continue to support my colleagues and customers whenever I can be of help."
