Jan Lorenz has been appointed as Jungheinrich UK’s new managing director, replacing Hans-Herbert Schultz, who is taking responsibility for sales in North-West Europe.
With more than ten years of experience within the Jungheinrich Group, Lorenz has been responsible for its sales and marketing for the past six and a half years.
He had previously worked for the company in the US, developing a dealer network on the US-East coast, and in eastern Canada, before becoming director of direct sales there.
“I look forward to taking up the challenge of building on Hans-Herbert’s excellent work and further strengthening our market position and profitability,” he said.
Effective from 1 January 2014, the move will now see Schultz based in Hamburg, Germany.
