equipment executive with extensive global experience in sales,
marketing, operations and product development, has been named chairman
of Sany America . In this newly created position, Frank has overall
responsibility for manufacturing, sales, marketing and support for all
Sany equipment products in the United States, Canada, Mexico and Central
America. The appointment was effective August 9.

“Sany is a brand known for seeking strong growth through quality
products and dedicated people,” said Liang Wengen, chairman of the board
of Sany Group, based in Changsha, China. “Tim Frank’s vision, strategic
thinking and record of accomplishment will serve Sany well as we grow
our presence in the Americas. Tim knows what needs to be done to
establish Sany as a market leader as it is in China and in other regions
around the world. He will pursue this goal with vigour.”

Frank previously served in various global sales and marketing capacities
at CNH Global and Caterpillar.


“Sanyis the fastest growing construction equipment manufacturer in the
world by a significant margin, with unprecedented results in China and
other markets around the world. Most of North America is just now
learning of this legacy of success and achievement,” Frank said. “As I
have grown to know Sany, it became obvious that something special was
happening in this company. I am so excited to be a part of it.
Construction contractors in the United States, Canada, Mexico and
Central America will soon come to know Sany America for helping them get
the job done in a competitive economy.”
