Adam Bauer – Branch Manager

Adam learned the tools of the trade at Universal Cranes Ballina, where his family owns and operates the local Ballina branch. After 10 years in the cabs of frannas, slew cranes and crawler cranes, Adam did a stint at Universal Cranes HQ in Brisbane. He eagerly put his hand up for the Gladstone Branch Manager role, relocating to Gladstone in early 2014. Adam is now responsible for managing all sales and operations, planning and delivery of crane hire jobs, and preparation of lift studies.

Dion Georgel – Operations Manager

Dion began his crane career in Christchurch, New Zealand, working as a crane operator for Universal Cranes’ sister company Smith Crane and Construction. Dion crossed the Tasman back and forth a couple of times between 2008 and 2011, spending time as a crane operator and sales representative for Universal Cranes in Brisbane as well as crane supervisor for Smith Cranes. In 2015, Dion made the official jump to Central Queensland, taking up the role of Operations Manager at the Gladstone branch.
