Terex AWP has appointed, Buhan Okan Acar to the newly created region sales manager for its Genie products in the Turkey and Caspian Sea region.
Acar first joined Terex in 2014 as a member of the Terex Financial Services (TFS) team in Turkey, a role in which he was responsible for customers across all Terex divisions in the region.
Prior to his two years with TFS, after holding roles of increasing levels of responsibility with two regional rental companies, Okan held the position of general manager for the rental operations of one of the leading forklift rental companies in Turkey.
“I’ve had the pleasure of working in close collaboration with Okan for the past two years. I have no doubt that his long experience and deep understanding of the rental business and local market make him the right person to support our customers in Turkey and the Caspian Sea region”, said Erik Geene, Genie senior director for strategic accounts and used equipment at Terex AWP.
“In addition to his sales role, Okan will continue to provide sound financial advice and solutions that best fit our customers’ specific business needs.”
