After working in the access business with ATN and Youngman, Meheust comes to Genie from UNIC Cranes, where he was responsible for the company’s European sales.
Meanwhile, Arjen Snijder has been appointed as Genie sales director, Terex AWP, for Germany, Austria and Switzerland (GAS region) and strategic accounts. After several years with Gunco where he supported Genie products, Snijder moved to tracked platform manufacturer Teupen where he held the position of sales director Europe for six years.
Today he joins Genie from Riwal, where he managed retail sales and business development. Based in The Netherlands and also reporting to de Kluijver, Snijder takes over leadership in Germany from Lars Raagaard, who is now fully dedicated to the role of Genie sales director, Terex AWP, to the Nordics region (Denmark, Iceland, Sweden, Norway, Finland and Baltics), which is developing very fast.
“We are excited to welcome Thomas and Arjen to the Genie team,” said de Kluijver. “Both their experience and reputation in the access industry will be excellent additions to our strong team of experts. I have no doubt that we will keep strengthening our leadership and continue to be focused on customer responsiveness.”
