Nic Hutchinson joins Bennetts having worked at Wolffkran (previously HTC) for more than 20 years, in a variety of roles including national operations manager and later head of operations.
Bennetts Cranes managing director Edward Seager said: "We are really pleased to have Nic join our team. He has a great deal of experience and expertise to bring to the business.
"At Bennetts we have been expanding into different areas of construction and delivering larger and heavier capacity cranes for a variety of job types, and we see this area of the business growing in the coming years as off-site building methods become more popular. Nic's experience in larger cranes and big construction projects will be invaluable for this."
Nic Hutchinson said: "I was ready for a change and a new challenge and working with Bennetts will give me that challenge and also more diversity. It is great to come in and work with new colleagues on a range of interesting projects across the UK, and to be able to work with cranes from a range of suppliers – which gives us more choice to deliver the best crane for every job."
