Mahesh Narang will succeed the retiring Frank Nerenhausen as EVP of Oshkosh Corp. and president of its access segment, including JLG, effective Nov. 13, 2023. Tim Morris has been appointed chief commercial officer for JLG Americas. He will be responsible for overseeing all JLG whole goods and aftermarket commercial business initiatives in the Americas region.

Narang most recently served as VP and president of components at Cummins, where he executed a forward-looking strategy to grow in core diesel markets while expanding into new and fuel agnostic adjacent markets, according to Oshkosh. Narang also led the acquisition and integration of several companies, helping grow the components business by over 50% and prepare for future technologies.

Nerenhausen is retiring after more than 37 years with Oshkosh. Since joining the company as an intern in 1986, his career has included a range of management and leadership assignments of increasing responsibility across business segments. He was named the access segment president in 2012.

“Frank has built a world-class team, successfully leading JLG to great heights for more than a decade,” said John Pfeifer, president/CEO, in a statement. “During his tenure, the Access segment has achieved significant growth and profitability, while introducing progressive innovations that leave our business in an outstanding position with a bright future.

“We have an exceptionally strong bench of talent at our Access segment,” said Pfeifer. “Mahesh’s diversified experience combined with the longevity of Tim’s experience and deep customer relationships will allow us to continue our growth trajectory and maintain our market leadership.”
