Oshkosh Corp., a manufacturer of access equipment, specialty vehicles and vehicle bodies, announced changes to its leadership team in the Commercial business segment. Mike Wuest, Oshkosh executive vice president and president of the Commercial segment, is retiring. Since 2004, Wuest has been the head of the Commercial segment, which consists of McNeilus, Con-E-Co, London Machinery and IMT.
Frank Nerenhausen has been promoted to executive vice president and president of the Commercial segment, effective Aug. 23. Nerenhausen, who most recently served as vice president of sales for McNeilus, joined Oshkosh in 1986 and has held a number of key executive sales and finance positions.
“During his more than 29-year career at Oshkosh Corporation, Mike Wuest has been an important part of our organization and held essential roles in advancing our purchasing and operations systems,” says Charlie Szews, Oshkosh president and chief operating officer. “His leadership of the Commercial group during the global economic recession has provided a strong foundation for our company to build upon. Frank Nerenhausen will bring his considerable sales skills and strategic vision to this leadership position and build momentum for capturing future opportunities.”
