Eaton, a leading provider of hydraulic systems for a variety of construction and plant machines, has announced that Astrid Mozes has been named president – Europe, the Middle East and Africa for the Hydraulics Group, while present chief Egon Lechner has been named ‘solutions architect’.
Mozes was formerly the SVP and general manager of the Power and Motion Control Division group and will now oversee the company’s sales, marketing and operations infrastructure in the MENA region, and she will be based in Switzerland and report to William VanArsdale, president of Eaton’s Hydraulics Group.
She will oversee the group’s sales, marketing and operations infrastructure in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. “Astrid’s experience will be a great asset as she works to strengthen our capabilities and position in this important region,” VanArsdale says.
Meanwhile former Bosch man Lechner will concentrate “translating the business needs of Eaton’s global market segments into technical requirements, as well as working across the business to identify targeted customer solutions,” said the company.
“Egon worked across business and geographic lines to help our businesses in Europe, the Middle East and Africa become the strong contributors they are today,” says VanArsdale. “His success in this position, as well as his technical background and experience, are some of the reasons we chose him for this integral new role in the Hydraulics Group.”
