Reporting to Jacco de Kluijver, Genie VP sales and marketing for EMEAR, Chandler is directly responsible for the development of some strategic Genie customer accounts. Working in close collaboration with Matt Skipworth, Genie senior manager service solutions, he is also responsible for supporting the development of the Genie Service Solutions (GSS) offering.

“It has always been a pleasure to work with John, and we are very glad to have him back on the team,” said de Kluijver. “His skills and experience go without saying. For Genie, customer service is a top priority. With his level of understanding of the market, our customers’ business challenges, and Genie products and services, I have every confidence that John’s multi-facetted abilities will add value to our customer sales and service offering.”

“I am delighted to be back,” Chandler added, “As illustrated by a recent series of strategic acquisitions, today’s European market is highly competitive. As a result, for many rental companies, consolidating their business success in the long-term is a key concern. Furthermore, at a time when safety standards and technology are at a higher level than ever before, skilled technical resources are few and far between. Keeping machines properly maintained and safe to operate is an increasing issue, and it is alarming to see that contrary to what should be expected, standards are slipping.”.
