Houston-based Scott Wilkes to lead USA operations and business development for MYCRANE
A milestone in MYCRANE’s global expansion was achieved with the launch of its own operation in the USA. Houston-based Scott Wilkes has been appointed as Director of Business Development, reporting directly to the senior management team in the United Arab Emirates.
Reflecting the importance and size of the market, MYCRANE has elected to establish its own operations in the USA, rather than appoint a franchisee to roll out its services, as it has done in other locations.
The Dubai-based digital disruptor launched the world’s first online crane rental platform in autumn 2021 and offers a suite of other innovative digital tools and services to help all those in the construction industry.
Pointing to encouraging recent legislation such as the CHIPS and Science Act of 2022 and the largest infrastructure bill for more than a decade, MYCRANE founder and CEO Andrei Geikalo said the time was right for MYCRANE’s expansion into the USA.
Independent professionals who have customer connections, such as those working in construction, oil and gas, petrochemical, energy, mining and other industries where cranes are being used, are invited to help to market MYCRANE’s services and products to their professional network, on mutually beneficial terms.
“We recognise that the crane industry is a people business, and we welcome those who share our vision of a digital future to join us as a partner, so we can benefit from the digitalization of the industry together,” concluded Geikalo.
