Lifting gear rental specialists LGH North America has named Ryan Group as its new vice president of sales.

The role will involve Group serving as a member of the executive team alongside the vice presidents of support and of operations. His primary function is to create sales objectives for North America and lead the regional sales managers with strategic direction to develop and implement the appropriate sales activities to meet or exceed those objectives.

Group comes to LGH after spending the past ten years in various sales and managerial roles at Enerpac Tool Group. He was a territory manager for six years before moving into upper management.

In 2019, Group accepted a role as Western regional sales director at Enerpac, and less than ten months later, he was moved to take over the Eastern region due to a restructuring caused by the pandemic. Over the past four years, he has had the opportunity to lead the entire North American sales organisation for Enerpac in some capacity. He also has prior distribution sales experience with rigging and hoisting manufacturers such as Harrington Hoist, Columbus McKinnon and Crosby.

LGH North America said: “We’re excited about Ryan joining the LGH family, and we’re sure his experience will make him a valuable asset to our company and our customers.”
