Terex Corp. said Doug Friesen has been named senior vice president, Terex Business System (TBS). Friesen is currently vice president and managing director, Terex Cranes Demag, Zweibrucken, Germany. Friesen joined Terex in 2005 as vice president and general manager, North America, Terex Cranes.

Friesen will transition to his new role over the next several months and report directly to Ron DeFeo, Terex chairman and chief executive officer. New leadership will be identified in the coming months for Terex Cranes Demag, the company said.

DeFeo said, “TBS, which was initiated at Terex a few years ago, is more than an operations initiative. It will become the enterprise-wide playbook to deliver our customer, team member and financial goals. We expect that TBS will provide us with significant competitive advantage through the use of customer-centric tools that continually enhance customer responsiveness and eliminate waste.
