Omaha Standard PALFINGER (OSP) has announced Mark Whaley will step down as the company’s president on Jan. 1, 2016, but will continue his involvement with PALFINGER under the PALFINGER North America Group (PNAG) moving forward.
“We are pleased that Mark’s personal goals can now be achieved and that he will remain with PALFINGER,” says Mark Woody, managing director of the PALFINGER North America Group. “Under Mark’s leadership, major accomplishments were achieved at OSP that resulted in strong sales growth, including the development of an entire line of service cranes and mechanics truck bodies and the integration of several PALFINGER liftgates into our Council Bluffs, Iowa facility.”
In a related move, PALFINGER says Jason Holt will report directly to Mark Woody. Holt, who holds the position of vice president – operations, has made tremendous contributions to the operational objectives at OSP since his installment in 2013, the company says.
“I am very excited to be a part of this next phase of OSP’s transformation and supporting our customers with high-quality products,” Holt says.
