Emerson sharpens European focus25th October 2017
GERMANY: Emerson has announced a new organisational structure for its Commercial & Residential Solutions business in Europe.
The two-year process has seen Emerson streamline its five business platforms into two – Emerson Automation Solutions and Emerson Commercial & Residential Solutions.
Emerson says these changes enable it to focus on core business and competencies, and support the company’s transformation into a comprehensive global solution provider across all markets, from cold chain to residential and commercial buildings.
“This organisational change is focused on aligning our European sales and marketing teams around core markets and channels,” said Jean Janssen, president of Emerson Commercial & Residential Solutions Europe. “It keeps Emerson Commercial & Residential Solutions Europe consistent with Emerson’s global strategic repositioning.”
The new sales organisation is led by Rainer Dietrich, vice president of sales for Europe. Continuing in the role he has held for six years, Dietrich leads the sales of core refrigeration and comfort products in Europe, including compressors and controls sold through OEM and wholesale channels. In addition, he will be responsible for newly formed teams dedicated to electronics and to solutions offering now including the Cargo and the Retail Solutions Business.
To further strengthen the solutions approach with OEM partners, Stephane Bertagnolio is promoted to director of OEM solutions development and sales. Bertagnolio will lead a dedicated team of experts in electronics and HVACR systems, reporting to Dietrich.
Emerson emphasises that the organisational changes will not affect current sales channel structures.
