“Liebherr’s commitment to developing his management team is truly inspirational,” said Tammy Berberick, president and CEO of Crestcom, an international leadership development and sales training organization. “I am honored to name Liebherr and the team as the winner of this year’s Global Leadership Growth Award.”

Vicki Wishon, Liebherr's human resources manager, explained why she chose Crestcom: “The 12-month format was a good fit for us. It breaks the learning into bite-size pieces and allows a supervisor or manager to learn new concepts, have 30 days to put it to work and then have a follow up. The subject matter changes over time and benefits people in that group or people with aspirations to be [in that group], and even experienced managers and leaders find good takeaways from the program.”

“It is an honor to receive this award and be recognized by Crestcom International,” said Torben Reher, managing director of Liebherr USA, Co. Just as Liebherr is focused on developing the world’s best products and technologies and offering the highest quality of customer service, our company is also committed to recruit, develop, reward and retain our most valuable resource; our people. We take pride in creating a work environment and culture that fosters success, both personally and professionally.”
