Duluth, September 1, 2011
AGCO, a leading manufacturer of agricultural equipment, has announced new regional leadership responsibilities in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) and Eastern Europe and Asia (EEA) regions.
The announced changes will be effective on January 1, 2012.
"AGCO continues to focus on global growth as we invest and expand across geographies," said Martin Richenhagen, chairman, president and CEO of AGCO.
“These upcoming changes in regional leadership are part of AGCO’s global growth strategy and facilitate the development of AGCO’s business opportunities across our diverse regions.”
Gary Collar, currently senior vice president and general manager, EMEA/ANZ, will assume responsibility for the Asia Pacific (APAC) region as senior vice president and general manager, APAC.
Hubertus Muehlhaeuser, currently senior vice president, Strategy & Integration and general manager, EEA, will be responsible for the EMEA region, including Eastern Europe, as senior vice president and general manager, EMEA.
Muehlhaeuser will continue to retain responsibility for AGCO’s Information Technology division.
AGCO’s Strategy & Integration group, established by Muehlhaeuser in 2005, will transition to the leadership of Andy Beck, senior vice president and chief financial officer.
Beck will also take responsibility for the AGCO Sisu Power engine business, which was formerly part of Muehlhaeuser’s responsibilities.
In his new role, Collar and his team will further strengthen AGCO’s regional presence in Asia and continue to manage the growth and development of the China and India business while retaining his current responsibilities for Australia and New Zealand. – TradeArabia News Service
