Schemerhorn Named President of NMHG Big Trucks Group | Industry News

NACCO Materials Handling Group (NMHG) has appointed Brett Schemerhorn as president, Big Trucks Americas. The specialized Big Trucks team was developed as part of a recent reorganization to enhance the company’s focus on meeting the specialized material-handling needs and challenges of end-users of these products.

“Not only are big trucks emblematic of our brands, but given their high-lifting capacity needs and complex operating environments, big trucks can also present the most challenging set of lift truck applications in the materials handling industry,” said Schemerhorn. “This new group is evidence of our company’s knowledge of and commitment to driving value and reducing operating costs for these critical market segments, and I welcome the opportunity this new role presents.”

Schemerhorn has nearly 20 years of experience in the material-handling industry. He joined NMHG as an inventory analyst in 1995 and has worked his way through a series of increasingly significant positions, including the vice president of National Accounts and vice president of sales for Hyster Company. Most recently, he served as the vice president of marketing for NMHG, where he was responsible for the overall marketing of the Hyster, Yale, and UTILEV brands to customers, dealers and internal personnel.
