By Lewis Tyler25 July 2023
Develon has appointed Andreas M. Lohner as its new managing director for its German branch.
Lohner joined the company in March and initially held the role of sales manager for Germany, Austria and Switzerland (DACH), a role which he will continue to assume responsibility for.
Prior to joining Develon, Lohner spent 11 years with Wacker Neuson Group, where he recently served as group director for corporate marketing & digital business.
With the appointment, Develon says it is “sending out clear signals and investing consistently and continuously in Germany as a major business location.”
Gilles Bendaoud, vice president sales for Develon Europe, said, “We are delighted to have Andreas Lohner, a proven industry expert, at Develon. He brings an excellent track record and shares our passion for digitally driven innovation. At the same time, we would like to thank Hans-Joachim Erdmann, who was in charge of the DACH region on a transitional basis last year.”
Lohner added, “Develon, formerly best known as Doosan, has an excellent reputation with its solutions in the industry with many real fans. And when I think of our innovations that will reach market maturity in the coming years, the customers will be thrilled. Like, for example, our innovations with the patented transparent wheel loader bucket - simply a brilliant solution that significantly increases work safety.
“Together with our dealers, we will also strike out in new directions while maintaining a balance between continuity and partnership-based exchange at eye level, always with our customers at the centre of all our considerations, so that added value is created.”
