TRT has appointed Marc Baumback to the role of country manager for TRT Australia. Baumback started his role on 12 October and will be leading the team in Australia from TRT‘s Brisbane operation. 

Baumback‘s appointment supports TRT‘s continued focus on growth within Australia through further expansion into key industry sectors, including construction, transport, resource and defence. The role supports COO Lawrence Baker, and both directors, Bruce and Robert Carden.

“This is a critical leadership role for TRT. Marc‘s depth of experience in leading businesses through growth and change, in challenging environments with a global perspective, is aligned to accelerate the delivery of our strategic objectives and to enhance the growing reputation TRT has as a quality OEM manufacturer and leader of industry innovation. The management team and board of directors look forward to working with Marc,” says Bruce Carden, TRT‘s director of innovation and sales.

“This is an exciting challenge and a change for me. TRT Australia is embarking on the next phase of growth with a range of manufactured and imported product, with the TIDD Crane and TRT Trailers at its foundation. TRT‘s strategic partnerships with Manitowoc, Grove, Kobelco and Hiab are evidence of the trust TRT has gained from within the industry to deliver integrated solutions to customers,” says Baumback. 

Originally from Queensland, Baumback‘s experience spans a long career, in a variety of international roles. Starting his career as an Australian Army officer, he moved into logistics and operational roles within a number of blue-chip companies that include BlueScope Steel, Chevron in South Korea and most recently, Toll Logistics, where he led business activity, projects and programmes across Australia, Asia and the USA.
