Genie Announces Product Management Team Changes

Christine Zeznick
Zach Gilmore

Terex Aerial Work Platforms (AWP) appointed Christine Zeznick to the position of Genie senior product manager and business development manager for telematics. Zach Gilmor will succeed Zeznick as Genie product manager for the Europe, Middle East, Africa and Russia region (EMEAR).

Zeznick, who has relocated to Redmond, Wash., for her new role, will lead the development and deployment of the next phase of the Genie telematics strategy globally. She will also play a central role in defining the brand’s telematics product and service offering and reports directly to Mike Davis, newly appointed to Genie vice president of product management and Terex Business Systems (TBS).

Since joining Genie in 2010, Zeznick has worked in the areas of supply chain and product management and most recently held the position of Genie product manager for EMEAR. As Zeznick’s successor, Gilmor is responsible for identifying opportunities for the differentiation of Genie products, services, and solutions, and the development of new products and offerings for the EMEAR market. Primarily, he will be responsible for deployment of the global strategy surrounding hybrid power systems in Genie products. Gilmor’s experience in the development and engineering of hybrid power systems, and their many benefits to customers and end users, willallow Terex AWP to bring to market the next generation of Mobile Elevated Work Platforms (MEWPs) that meet the demand for high performance, high rROIC, and clean power generation.

Gilmor will also work closely with the Product Management team in Redmond and other key functions in EMEAR (Engineering, Sourcing, Manufacturing, Sales, Operations and Aftermarket Parts/Services, and Finance) to develop and drive the execution of the Genie product strategy. In his new position, he is based at the Terex Global GmbH headquarters in Schaffhausen, Switzerland.

Since joining Genie in 2008, Zach has held positions of increasing responsibility within design engineering for the Genie SX-180 and Z-62/40 booms new product development programs, chief engineer on the development of the Genie Z-60/37 FE and DC booms lifts, and since 2016, as associate product manager, responsible for mid-size booms (Genie S-45 to S-85 booms and Z-60 to Z-80 booms).
