The Dr. Johannes Heidenhain GmbH company in July selected David Doyle as President and Managing Director of the Schaumburg, Ill.-based Heidenhain Corp.  Doyle assumes full responsibility for the Heidenhain customer-focused operations for the U.S., Canada and Mexico. This change continues the succession plan for Heidenhain CEO Rick Korte. 

"I am happy to announce the next phase of the succession plan for our North American operations, with the promotion of David Doyle to President and Managing Director," said Korte. "I have the utmost confidence in David and trust he will continue to grow our business and support our customers with world class service in all areas."

With more than 25 years of experience in international capital equipment business and technical support management, Doyle has rapidly established his leadership influence with the U.S. organization, said Ralf Moog-Oberkircher, head of Global Sales for the Dr. Johannes Heidenhain GmbH group.

Said Doyle: "I am looking forward to leading the Heidenhain Corp. team through the next phase of development, and reaching our growth objectives in North America. Core to our team’s mission is delivering the highest quality innovative products to the markets we serve, with exceptional support to our customers. We leverage our breadth of applications expertise, advanced technologies and responsiveness to enable our customers to deliver breakthrough engineering solutions and reducing their time to market. We continue to invest in our Bay Area resources and infrastructure, supporting our OEM partners with both the Heidenhain product portfolio and ETEL systems expertise."
