The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) has elected a new director, Skyjack president Brad Boehler, to its CE sector board.
Boehler (right) will fill the vacant role at the North American-based international trade group, which represents off-road equipment manufacturers and suppliers with more than 900 companies and over 200 product lines in the agriculture, construction, forestry, mining and utility sectors worldwide.
AEM officers and directors work on behalf of all member companies, giving their time and talent to provide strategic direction and guidance for Association action in areas including public policy, market data and exhibitions, as well as technical, safety and regulatory issues, and education/training.
Boehler joined Skyjack in 2003 and has progressively held strategic positions, including the previous titles of vice president of engineering and vice president of sales and marketing.
He holds the designation of Professional Engineer and began his career as a military engineer with the Canadian Armed Forces. Boehler is active in several AEM working committees, and chairs the AEM Canada Working Group. He is also active in leadership roles for the International Powered Access Federation (IPAF).
AEM president Dennis Slater said, “At AEM, we benefit from the support of our member companies and the leadership talents of our board members, who are selected to reflect an industry cross-section.
“Their dedication helps ensure Association programs continue to meet member and industry needs, and we welcome Brad’s knowledge and participation.”
