“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,” Gerhardt said.
In his role, 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, Co.
