Former Clark Material Handling Company president and CEO Brian Butler is now president of Linde Material Handling-North America.

Butler succeeded Mitch Milovich, who had headed the Summerville, South Carolina-based forklift manufacturer since 1991.

Milovich has retired from Linde and returned to Lift Atlanta Inc, a family-owned Linde dealership he established in 1975.

Butler has more than 20 years’ experience in the materials handling industry. He held the positions of president, chief operating officer and vice president of sales and marketing at Clark.

Previously Butler spent most of his career at the dealership level, the most recent being vice president of sales and marketing of Material Handling Services in Chicago.

"Obviously my family and I are excited about joining Linde. I want to build on the success Linde has developed over the past few years, build on our product offering, and support our dealers and customers with world-class service and support," Butler said.

Linde Material Handling-North America, the new name for Linde Lift Truck Corp, is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Linde Material Handling, of Aschaffenburg, Germany.
