Boehler’s career spans nearly 25 years in the equipment industry, including work as an Engineer focused on product design and development. He also has experience with associations that build safety and training protocols. Most recently, Boehler served for eight years as President of Skyjack, where he was instrumental in growing the footprint and global distribution of the brand.
“Brad has held a variety of influential positions with major manufacturers and global industry organizations including IPAF and AEM,” said Terry Dolan, Hy-Brid Lifts President and CEO. “With in-depth experience in product design and development, safety and training protocols, and strategic leadership, Brad brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the Hy-Brid board."
Boehler will join a board comprised of six individuals who meet quarterly to help guide, grow, and diversify the Hy-Brid Lifts business while remaining true to the key design hallmarks of the brand. These include lowest floor loading, compact maneuverability and lifting capacity, and an ability to safely access more jobs.
“We are excited to have someone of Brad’s caliber on the Board,” said Stephen Ellis, Chairman of the Board. “His recent role as President of Skyjack arms him with a unique and knowledgeable perspective on the industry. We are confident that he will help positively mold the future of Hy-Brid Lifts.”
“I have been aware of Hy-Brid Lifts for quite some time, so this was an easy decision,” Boehler said. “I am familiar with large manufacturing operations in the access industry, and I hope to take this experience to help Hy-Brid Lifts."
