CraneWorks Names Southern Region Sales Director

Mike Shavlan, Director of Sales Southern Region

August 15, 2018 - CraneWorks Inc., a top provider of lifting solutions, has named Mike Shavlan as its director of sales for the Southern Region. Shavlan leads a team of nine people serving Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas, and southern California.

Shavlan brings more than 20 years’ experience to his role. He previously held several positions, including district regional manager, with Rush Truck Centers, Shavlan has a bachelor of science degree in finance from the University of Houston.

Keith Ayers, CEO of CraneWorks, said Shavlan’s career experience is key for three reasons:

“Now that we have Mike in place, we will build on our growth over the last 12 months,” said Ayers. “We’ll also align our sales goals with the Northern Region, which is headed by Bob Maze. In addition, because Mike’s experience is rooted in our industry, he understands the needs of our customers and prospects. His skill set is extremely valuable.”

For Shavlan, it all boils down to relationships. “People buy from people,” he said. “Our goal is not only to increase sales, but also to expand our market presence and footprint, and to become known as a leader in crane sales and rentals.”
