By Lindsey AndersonDecember 14, 2020

Magni Telescopic Handlers has added four regional sales managers for its U.S. operations while also expanding its dealer network.

Robert Cloud joined the company in the South-Central Region covering Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma and New Mexico. Cloud has more than 20 years of experience in the equipment rental and sales industry, and previously worked with NationsRent (now Sunbelt), United Rentals, Hertz Equipment Rental and Xylem Dewatering in various roles. 

“The South-Central Region is a huge focus for Magni going into 2021,” said Joe Leinwol, Magni’s VP of sales. “It’s a fast-growing market, and a big opportunity for both our rotating and heavy lift telehandler lines.” 

Jim Heckendorf joined Magni in July as the company’s Midwest regional manager. Heckendorf has over 25 years of experience selling and renting heavy material handling equipment focused on the construction industry, shipping port and intermodal rail terminals, as well as industrial applications. Heckendorf will cover Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa and Minnesota.

Nick Newbury joined Magni America in August covering the Southeast Region which includes Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama and Mississippi. Newbury joined Magni from Sunbelt Rentals where he was introduced to Magni units. Newbury said, “My first impression of Magni was love at first sight. When I first got into the machine I was absolutely blown away”. 

Anthony Obi has been named Northwest regional sales manager where he will cover Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Wyoming. Obi came to Magni after spending five years at United Rentals in various sales roles. Obi said he is ”looking forward to working with existing Magni dealer Pape Material Handling and working to set-up new dealers in Idaho, Montana and Wyoming.”

Leinwol said becoming a Magni dealer has numerous benefits “Magni Rotating Telehandlers are a very fast growing, non-commodity, specialized product segment. Compared to aerial work platforms and traditional telehandlers you’ll get book rate far more often. Magni’s growth in the U.S. market has been outstanding.”
