Global Rubber Industries (GRI) has hired Maury Shnier to be its sales and marketing director for the Americas. Shnier was previously with CAMSO, where recently he held the post of executive director, sales and operations for the Material Handling Aftermarket division in Canada and the U.S.
Having established itself as a trusted and reliable supplier of high-quality industrial tires for material handling applications, GRI will be significantly expanding its product offering into agriculture and construction tires with the grand opening of its new factory in January 2018. Shnier will be leading GRI’s efforts to expand its sales, distribution and dealer network to support the full scope of its enhanced product offering across the Americas. In the U.S., his focus will be on agriculture and construction tires, as GRI is well established in industrial tires.
“I am excited to be joining the GRI team to help them reach the full potential of their sizable investments in new manufacturing capabilities. Having seen their existing products in the market and witnessed their strong relationships, I look forward to ensuring the company continues that momentum as it branches out into new products and territories,” said Shnier.
Prabhash Subasinghe, GRI managing director, said, “As we continue to grow and expand our reach, senior professionals such as Maury will ensure that we do so diligently and rapidly in the Americas.”
