Perkins appoints global rental manager
By Joe Malone12 December 2017
Perkins Engines Company has announced it has promoted Andy Zuckerman to the newly-created position of global rental manager.
Zuckerman, who has served as Americas sales director for the company, began his new role this month. His responsibility will be to drive the company’s rental segment and grow its brand to rental customers around the world.
Perkins’ new global rental manager has previously served as rental manager for Caterpillar, covering both Latin America and EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa). He also spent two-and-a-half years as Caterpillar’s global SEM distribution and sales manager in China, from 2012 to 2014.
Jaz Gill, vice president, global sales, marketing, service and parts at Perkins, said, “Andy is well-suited for this position with significant experience in key marketing and rental roles with our company and prior to joining our team.
“His vast rental experience makes him a great fit for this very important role.”
Meanwhile, Ron Schultz has been named Americas sales director, replacing Zuckerman. Schultz’s responsibilities will include increasing the industrial engine sales execution for Perkins branded products within the Americas region. Schultz has most recently served as the aftermarket director and general manager of the Global On-Highway Truck division of Caterpillar.
Gill said, “Ron has an extensive background in marketing, distribution and sales with the company and will bring these great experiences to our Americas sales director role. I am confident that Ron can step right in and help us in many ways as we serve customers and grow our brand in the Americas.”
