De Kluijver, who is Vice President of Sales and Marketing EMEARI at Terex Aerial Work Platforms, has a wealth of experience in powered access, having made his entry to the industry with HDW Nederland, Genie’s importer for the Netherlands, in 2000.

After a short stint outside the industry, he returned to work for Genie in 2007, as Territory Sales Manager for the Benelux region, shortly thereafter combining this with the role of Sales Director for the UK & Ireland, adding overall responsibility for Benelux in 2008.

In December 2015 his remit at Genie was expanded again, taking on the role of Vice President Sales & Marketing for the EMEAR region, based at the Terex Headquarters in Schaffhausen, Switzerland. In 2020, the responsibility for India was added to his region, making it the largest sales territory within the whole Genie organisation.

Norty Turner, IPAF’s President, commented, “Jacco has served as a representative for Genie on the IPAF Council since 2014, being confirmed as the company’s full-time representative in 2015, so his move to join the IPAF board is a natural progression.

“With more than 1,500 members around the world now, IPAF is a truly global organisation. We welcome Jacco to the board and, as we have seen during his time as a member of the IPAF Council for the past eight years, he offers extensive knowledge and acumen.

“His experience working for one of the world’s leading equipment manufacturers will greatly benefit the Federation as we look to sustain and support our members and the wider industry as it continues to build back from the coronavirus pandemic.”

Jacco de Kluijver added, “For me, the work that IPAF does connects seamlessly with the objective every MEWP user around the world has – and the objective that every manufacturer of MEWPs should have – helping people to work at height safely and allowing them to go home to their families at the end of every shift.

“I am honoured to be asked to join the IPAF board; my objective will be to increase IPAF’s penetration as the leading training standard for safe work at height outside of established markets, as well as engaging with equipment manufacturers in terms of development and implementation of new standards and processes for safe use of MEWPs, MCWPs and construction hoists.”
