Takeuchi-US, a leader in compact equipment, has named Fred Hinton to a newly appointed position as technical trainer and content developer for the technical training group, effective immediately. This position was added in response to keeping up with the market growth Takeuchi has experienced.
Hinton’s main responsibilities include helping the training group facilitate instructor-led technical training to Takeuchi dealers and customers both at the Pendergrass, Georgia facility and regional locations. Additionally, he will use his instructional design background to develop content for future courses and help take the training program to the next level.
“We are very excited to have Fred as part of the Takeuchi family and we are already leveraging his expertise in instructional design with several of our instructor-led courses,” said David Steger, global training manager at Takeuchi. “His background in similar markets as ours has allowed him to quickly adapt to our industry, while bringing some industry leading practices to our team. He has already demonstrated his ability to connect learners of various levels and learning styles and generously shares his positive energy to those around him.”
With a background in instructional design, technical documentation and project management, Hinton brings 13 years of experience in construction and related industries. Recently, he earned an associates in theology degree from Sure Foundation Theological Institute in Seminole, Fla.
