PM appoints new sales directors

22 September 2020

Italian knuckleboom manufacturer PM has appointed Stefano Ghesini as sales director for Italy and Marco Castiglione as export sales director.

Stefano Ghesini has been tasked with consolidating existing business relationships and expanding the main distribution channels for PM. The appointment of Marco Castiglione confirms a role that he had already been fulfilling: developing new business strategies responding more effectively to enquiries.

Ghesini began his career working in a small crane company in the northern Italian region, where he was responsible for the development of the sales network. He then began the collaboration with PM that lasts for over 12 years. He was entrusted with the responsibility of managing the French, Spanish, Middle Eastern, Eastern European, African and American markets.

"I am proud to return to the PM family” said Ghesini “Which in recent years has invested in innovation, quality and service. I am confident and convinced that with my more than ten years of experience in the field of hydraulic cranes, I will build more and more solid and lasting relationships with customers by developing sales strategies and activities that contribute to strengthen the PM brand in Italy".

Marco Castiglione has an excellent knowledge of the product acquired in over 17 years of work at PM Cranes. “I am grateful to the company for the task I was assigned, a role that I accepted immediately with the right motivation and enthusiasm,” said Castiglione.

“Over the years, thanks also to the help of my collaborators, I have had the opportunity to build an important commercial network based on solid professional relationships that also pass through human relationships. Over time, many customers have become friends and companions of adventure, facing together moments of difficulty but also moments of great success, which have allowed us to become a great team that has led PM to be one of the world leaders in the truck crane world.”

Speaking about the two appointments, general manager Giovanni Tacconi said: “We are happy to have Stefano and Marco, experienced and talented professionals to drive the sales department. I believe with conviction that they will bring, thanks to their extensive knowledge of the product and markets, an important contribution to the development of the business plan in the coming years. I am confident that together we will continue to provide the attentive service that our customers expect from PM.”
