Platform rigging equipment and safety gear manufacturer Power Climber, a division of SafeWorks LLC, recently hired Eric Thormann as managing director.

Most recently, Thormann was vice president of sales services for Trane Europe with the Trane group - formerly American Standard Cos. Inc. - and served as a member of the leadership team. Thormann also held general management and sales and marketing roles with Carrier, Volvo and Union Carbide.

"Eric's extensive business development experience across reseller and end-user groups strengthens Power Climber's continued market leadership in powered access solutions and our growing wind business," says Scott Farrell, president and CEO of Power Climber.

The addition of Thormann comes with the announcement that Germain Vanhulle, general manager of Power Climber for more than 24 years, will retire in 2008.
