Leadership shakeup at JLG as Nerenhausen steps down

October 17, 2023  By Don Horne

JLG Industries, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation business and global manufacturer of mobile elevating work platforms and telehandlers, today announced the retirement of Frank Nerenhausen, executive vice president of Oshkosh Corporation and president of its Access segment.

Mahesh Narang will succeed Nerenhausen effective November 13, with Nerenhausen serving as an advisor to the company through August 2024.

Nerenhausen is retiring after more than 37 years with Oshkosh Corporation. Since joining the company as an intern in 1986, his career has included a range of management and leadership assignments of increasing responsibility across business segments. He was named the company’s Access segment president in 2012.

“Frank has built a world-class team, successfully leading JLG to great heights for more than a decade. During his tenure, the Access segment has achieved significant growth and profitability, while introducing progressive innovations that leave our business in an outstanding position with a bright future,” says John Pfeifer, president and chief executive officer of Oshkosh Corporation.


Most recently Narang served as vice president and president of Components at Cummins Inc., where he developed the strategic direction and led all operational aspects of the components business. Further, he executed a forward-looking strategy to grow in core diesel markets while expanding into new and fuel agnostic adjacent markets.

Narang also led the acquisition and integration of several companies, helping grow the components business by over 50 per cent and prepare for future technologies.

“In addition, we are taking this opportunity to align the commercial activities of JLG Americas to prepare for future growth,” says Pfeifer.

Tim Morris, who has been with JLG since 1992, has been appointed chief commercial officer for JLG Americas. He will be responsible for overseeing all JLG whole goods and aftermarket commercial business initiatives in the Americas region.

“We have an exceptionally strong bench of talent at our Access segment. Mahesh’s diversified experience combined with the longevity of Tim’s experience and deep customer relationships will allow us to continue our growth trajectory and maintain our market leadership,” says Pfeifer.
