Duisburg, 23 May 2023 – Holger Schmitz has been the new Business Development Manager at Clark Europe in Duisburg since April 2023.
His new area of responsibility includes expanding the dealer network in Europe as well as supporting the Clark Regional Managers.

From 2007 until recently, Schmitz was employed by Doosan Industrial Vehicle Europe as County Manager and managed the German branches as well as the sales activities in the DACH region and Eastern Europe.
