Tim Gerhardt has been named a managing director for Liebherr USA. He will share executive responsibilities with Kai Friedrich, also a managing director as well as divisional director for the construction equipment product segment.
The move aligns with Liebherr USA’s mixed sales organization that it says “leverages the organization’s capabilities by creating a simpler structure with broader reach.” Liebherr USA houses the sales and services operations for nine product segments.
“Working as managing director for Liebherr in the United States gives me the unique opportunity to develop the company to its next level after a successful launch in 2016,” said Gerhardt in a prepared statement. “It allows me to work in an interesting environment within one of Liebherr’s most important markets,” he continued.
Gerhardt will be responsible for leading and overseeing the strategic development, communication, and implementation of growth strategies for all corporate, finance, and administrative functions integrated in the shared services at Liebherr USA
Gerhardt most recently served as managing director at Liebherr-Ettlingen GmbH remanufacturing center. He has more than 20 years’ experience in the automotive industry, and prior to joining the Liebherr Group served as CFO at MAN Truck & Bus. He has spent time with BMW Group and Bosch Group.
