As part of the company’s recent sales and marketing realignment efforts, GF Machining Solutions, Lincolnshire, Illinois, has announced that Peter Eigenmann, former head of sales for the Southeast region, has been promoted to the position of director of sales and marketing, effective Oct. 7, 2019. Eigenmann’s promotion and the organizational changes he has instituted to further improve the company’s customer service and communication supports GF Machining Solutions’ ongoing commitment to quality, innovation and long-term growth in market region North and Central America.
“As the marketplace becomes increasingly more competitive, manufacturers need more than a supplier – they require a partner,” said Phil Hauser, president of GF Machining Solutions in North and Central America. “We’re committed to serving as that partner by providing customers with a fully optimized experience throughout the purchasing lifecycle, and under Peter’s leadership, that will begin with the sales process.”
Bringing with him extensive experience in machine tools, the mold and die industry and industrial manufacturing operations, Eigenmann joined GF Machining Solutions in April 2013 as the head of project management in Schorndorf, Germany, before serving as the head of sales for the Southeast region. Peter Eigenmann received his undergraduate education in mechanical engineering at the Swiss Institute of Technology in Uzwil, Switzerland, and his master’s certificate in project management from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh.
