On January 1, 2023, Kenichi Sawada will take over the management of Tadano Europe. He thus succeeds Jens Ennen, who decided to pursue other opportunities.
With Kenichi Sawada, an internationally experienced manager and proven expert in the industry is taking over the management of Tadano Europe, having previously headed Tadano Faun GmbH in Germany. As a member of Tadano’s senior management team, Mr. Sawada was most recently Head of Global Operations. In this role, he has worked hand-in-hand with Jens Ennen over the past few years to restructure Tadano’s European operations.
In a transitional phase, Jens Ennen will continue to serve Kenichi Sawada and Tadano Europe as an advisor to ensure a smooth transition.
” We want to thank Jens Ennen for his cooperation and contributions, especially for the major role he played in shaping the future of Tadano Europe over the past years,” emphasizes Toshiaki Ujiie, President and CEO of the Tadano Group.
