Guelph, ON – Linamar Corporation’s Skyjack Division appointed four new regional vice-presidents to help oversee its newly expanded North American sales network. The previous three-region organization will be replaced by four regions and the dedicated national account structure will be strengthened.

Skyjack is a Canadian manufacturer of aerial work platforms that sells its products worldwide.

The regional vice-presidents – Pat Quint, Matt Lyons, David Lillquist and vice-president national accounts Mark A. Estock – will be responsible for aligning regional sales activity with Skyjack’s strategic plan and implementing programs to further increase sales in their territories.

Quint, Lyons and Lillquist were appointed vice-president for the Eastern Sales Region, Central Sales Region and Western Sales Region, respectively. In their new roles, they will lead a team of Territory Managers to provide national and independent rental houses with sales and marketing support.

Estock was appointed vice-president of National Accounts and will be responsible for developing sales programs and new channels of sales and distribution as well as providing insight into Skyjack’s product development and planning programs.

Growing North American demand

The four new appointments will help Skyjack meet growing demand from the North American rental market that in turn is being driven by positive construction market trends which have seen fleet replacement move into fleet growth.

All four vice-president positions will report to Eric Liner, vice-president of North American Sales for Skyjack.

“At Skyjack we believe in making it easy for customers to do business with us and increasing customer service coverage allows us to decrease response times and build more long term relationships,” Liner said.
