Ametek Land has appointed Jesper Kristiansen as its new Senior Director of Global Sales.

In his new role, Mr Kristiansen will have full responsibility for leading Ametek’s commercial strategies, working with the global sales teams.

He will have the goal of accelerating growth in the glass, hydrocarbon, and industrial processing markets.

The appointment is part of an organisational change that will see the Directors of Sales in America and Asia, and all European Regional Sales Managers report directly to this new position.

A member of the Ametek team for 17 years, Mr Kristiansen has held a variety of sales and marketing management roles and was most recently Director of Global Sales for the Ametek Sensor Test & Calibration.

He will report directly to Justin Smith, Divisional Vice President/Business Unit Manager of Ametek Land, who said: "I'd like to congratulate Jesper as he takes on this new leadership responsibility.

“He brings a wealth of expertise and experience in channel management to his new role. Jesper has a truly global perspective of our operations.

“He will be focused not only on our worldwide business strategy but also on supporting, driving, and strengthening our regional sales partners."
