Stephan Pies is set to become futronic’s new Head of Sales.
He will take over the job from Michael Preuss, who plans to concentrate more on his duties as Managing Director, on 1 January 2018.
A native of Tettnang, Pies (pictured), aged 34, has been with the company since February 2011.
He previously trained as a mechatronics fitter prior to taking a degree in Business Engineering, specialising in electrical engineering, at Konstanz University of Applied Sciences.
Pies came to futronic to write his dissertation – and stayed. He earned his first spores as a sales engineer for the container glass industry before switching to the newly established Industrial Automation division.
In future, he will have overall responsibility for all futronic divisions; his main task on the operative side will be to look after key accounts.
Pies: “We want to continue growing in all segments. And that growth has to be managed. With the right sales strategy and a vision for tomorrow. It’s an exciting challenge that I’m delighted to accept.”
“futronic has grown considerably in recent years”, Preuss explains. That’s why this move is both right and important.
“With his knowledge and experience, Stephan Pies is precisely the person we need to assume responsibility for sales.” Preuss himself plans to concentrate more on his duties as Managing Director from now on.
