Terex Cranes announces Bill Cox as the new sales director for Terex Cranes North America. In his role, he will work with Terex Cranes' senior management to set and drive equipment sales strategy throughout the United States and Canada, lead the Terex Cranes internal and field sales teams, and interact with Terex Cranes distributors and customers. He replaces Mark Phillippi, who will retire at the end of the year.
"We welcome Bill to Terex to lead the North American Cranes sales team. His passion for field sales support, distributor development, technical training and equipment applications assistance will help us to advance support of our customers' success in the field," says Dean Barley, vice president and general manager for Terex Cranes Americas. "He brings to Terex nearly 25 years of construction equipment sales experience, which helps to strengthen our commitment to customers."
Cox began his construction sales management career in 1993 as district sales manager for Stone Construction Equipment, Inc., working with customers and distributors throughout a five-state territory. He worked for Terex briefly in the early 2000s, managing sales and distributor development for Genie, and the Terex Light Construction division. Most recently, Cox served as a crane equipment sales and distributor development representative for Tadano Mantis Corporation.
"I am excited to join the Terex Cranes team and am looking forward to working with customers, distributors and the rest of the Terex Cranes field sales team," mentions Cox. "Through the Terex and Demag brands, we offer companies the industry's widest range of lifting solutions, backed by unparalleled applications expertise, to meet virtually any customer need."
After 16 years with Terex, Mark Phillippi will retire from Terex Cranes at the end of December. His career with Terex began in August of 2001 as the general manager of Terex Asset Service. Making the transition to Terex Cranes, he started as vice president of Crane Financial Sales and then managed field sales for the central region. He retires as the director of sales for the south, west and Mexico territories, which he held since 2009.
"We thank Mark for his years of dedication to Terex and the Cranes segment and for his tireless work ethic," continues Barley. "His efforts helped to drive sales and fuel market growth for Terex Cranes throughout his region."
Reflecting on his career, Phillippi comments, "Working with a great team and wonderful customers, my time in the cranes industry and with Terex has been much more fun than work. I enjoyed working in this industry and will cherish the friendships made over the years, both at Terex and in the field with our distributor representatives and customers."
