Joshi To Lead Manitowoc Cranes In Asia-Pacific
Manitowoc Cranes announced that Raman Joshi has been named to head the company’s operations in the Greater Asia-Pacific region, which covers much of Asia and Australasia, but excludes China. He takes over as executive vice president of GAP from Gilles Martin, who has left the company to pursue other interests. Joshi, who has begun his new duties, reports directly to Eric Etchart, president and general manager of Manitowoc Cranes.
His most recent role, which he will continue to occupy in conjunction with the new EVP position, was as vice president of Manitowoc Cranes India in which he oversees the company's factory for Potain tower cranes in Pune, as well as its five sales offices and network of local dealers. Before moving to India, he was marketing director of Asia-Pacific, and prior to that he served as global product manager for Manitowoc crawler cranes, his first role at the company which he assumed in 2006. Joshi will continue to be based in India, but will also spend much of his time at Manitowoc’s regional headquarters in Singapore.
Prior to joining Manitowoc, Joshi worked for Japanese bearing manufacturer NSK Ltd, and was sales and marketing manager for the company’s U.S. operations.
