CLARK Material Handling Company has announced the appointment of Scott Johnson to vice president of business development.
In this position, Johnson will continue to direct all dealer services, dealer development and government sales activities as well as develop and coordinate new business opportunities in North America to ensure Clark’s continued market share and profit growth.
“Scott brings a unique blend of expertise across many facets of our business including product knowledge, dealer relations, marketing and strategic planning combined with material handling industry expertise,” said Dennis Lawrence, president of CLARK.
An employee of CLARK since 1995, Johnson formerly served as the company’s Eastern regional sales manager, aftermarket sales and marketing manager, director of marketing and director of dealer services. He has been instrumental in CLARK’s appointment of a number of new distributors to its North American dealer network and in strengthening the bond between CLARK dealers and CLARK.

His continued participation in these organizations ensures that CLARK remains a visible entity in the material handling community.
