WESTPORT, Conn., Mar 09, 2006 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Terex Corporation (TEX:NYSE) has announced that Hyeryun Lee Park has joined the Company in the newly created position of President, Terex Asia. Ms. Lee Park will report directly to the Company's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Ronald M. DeFeo. Ms. Lee Park will work closely with Terex's operating segments to accelerate the Company's growth in Asia. She will divide her time between offices in Beijing and in Chicago.

"Hyeryun has consulted with Terex over several years and is uniquely qualified to help us grow our business in Asia," said Mr. DeFeo. "Asian GDP is forecast to grow faster than the rest of the world for the foreseeable future, so Terex's long-term growth will be enhanced by greater exposure to Asian markets. The development of our Asian business is one of the top areas for value creation in our organization, and when accomplished in conjunction with our on-going initiatives in global supply chain management, marketing, customer support, and human resources, will firmly establish Terex as a global industry leader."

"China in particular will be an area of focus," added Mr. DeFeo. "We have seen our business grow substantially in this market, and have just opened a new office in Beijing that will focus on our operations overall in Asia."

Prior to joining Terex, Ms. Lee Park was most recently President and Owner of Midas Alliance Group, a consulting company with approximately 60 consultants with offices in Chicago, Seoul, and Washington, D.C. Midas Alliance primarily advised western companies on Asian business development. Prior to that, she was Publisher of Construction Equipment and Construction Equipment Latin America for Cahners Publishing. Ms. Lee Park began her career with Samsung Construction Equipment America, and was responsible for overseeing Samsung's entry into the U.S. market. Ms. Lee Park is a graduate of Northwestern University, a native of Seoul, Korea and a U.S. citizen.
