Overall, Strader will bridge sales and marketing functions, approaching both with a unique strategy that combines problem solving and problem avoidance.”
Strader has a mechanical engineering degree from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and comes to ALL from Liebherr Cranes Inc., where he served as national accounts manager for five years. “I am humbled that this is the third position I’ve had that was created specifically for me,” said Strader. “As an engineer, I think I have shown value by approaching organizations differently and helping them look at themselves differently.” Strader joins ALL Erection & Crane Rental Corp. from Liebherr Cranes Inc., where he was national accounts manager for more than five years…I work from the top down and from the bottom up; I know that everyone in the organization has something important to share.”
“Hutton was an essential part of our past successes with Liebherr, and we saw synergies in forging a closer partnership,” said Michael Liptak, president of ALL. “As an engineer, Hutton has an analytical way of looking at cranes, lift sites, and their interaction. But more so, he takes an engineering approach to business problems, bringing about solutions in a logical fashion. That makes him a great asset to our team, already among the best in the industry.”
