Paul Bilson Named Cavaion Baumann Director of Dealer Development, National Accounts


Cavaion Baumann USA has named Paul Bilson director of dealer development and national accounts.

Bilson will lead the effort to strengthen the Baumann dealer network throughout the U.S. and Canada. National accounts will also fall under Paul’s responsibility.

“There is untapped potential for the use of heavy-duty sideloaders in North America,” Bilson said, “and I am excited to be representing Baumann, a brand with a reputation for quality and design, much like the Hyundai big trucks I represented for many years.”

Bilson comes from Hyundai Material Handling, where he was responsible for directing dealer development, national accounts, and government sales and was a key contributor to Hyundai’s rise in the North American market over the past 12 years.  He also is involved with organizations such as MHEDA (Material Handling Equipment Distributors Association) and NPCA (National Precast Concrete Association).

“Paul is a great fit for our organization,” said Rob Alling, president and CEO of Baumann USA, an associate member of the Southern Forest Products Association. “He comes highly regarded, and his relationships with forklift dealers throughout North America, in addition to his experience working with major accounts in the precast, steel, and lumber industries is what we were looking for to help grow our presence in the U.S. and Canada.”
