McConnellsburg, Pa.-based JLG Industries, Inc. and Jerr-Dan Corporation, LLC, both Oshkosh Corporation companies, have named Maria Silva vice president of human resources for the Access Segment.
The company’s Access business includes a broad range of world-leading access equipment, including JLG boom, scissor, low-level access, vertical, stock picker and towable lifts, as well as telescopic handlers and Jerr-Dan towing and recovery equipment.
In her new role, Silva will lead the company’s workplace transformation efforts, including the career growth of existing and acquisition of new team members and the implementation and execution of HR policies, programs and services. Additionally, she will advocate for and lead the Segment’s continued “People First” initiatives.
“Everything we do today honors our 50+ year history while keeping a sharp eye on tomorrow, from innovative product design to progressive manufacturing, to team member development. Maria will play a critical role in retaining and recruiting talent across every area of the business, fostering an inclusive and collaborative environment that will allow the JLG and Jerr-Dan brands to lead well into the digital future,” said Frank Nerenhausen, Access Segment president.
Silva said, “I am honored to join the Access Segment and represent two market leading brands like JLG and Jerr-Dan. To lead the human resource function in a people first culture — from employees, to customers, even suppliers and the local communities in which they live and work — is a remarkable, once in a lifetime opportunity. I’m looking forward to developing team members around the world and to identifying and onboarding the new talent, who together will drive JLG’s and Jerr-Dan’s continued market leadership.”
