Mecalac said that in his new role as general manager, Peter will build brand awareness by growing the business, developing a strong dealer network, and expanding the company’s North America team. As well as focusing on dealer development, he will launch and grow the presence of Mecalac in the rental market.

“Mecalac is a world leader in many of the product categories we have,” said CEO Alexandre Marchetta,.

“Unfortunately, the North and South American markets are fairly unfamiliar with our brand and product benefits. Adding Peter to the Mecalac team is an aggressive move to change that.”
