AMETEK Prestolite Power, manufacturer of battery chargers and fleet management systems, has named former HOBART executive Jim Keyser as its Business Manager. In his new position, Jim has responsibility for sales, marketing, engineering, customer service and field operations.
Jim joins Prestolite Power from Crown Battery Manufacturing, where he most recently served as Account Executive. Prior to that, Jim spent 19 years in a variety of positions at HOBART. HOBART was purchased by Prestolite Power and, in turn, Prestolite was acquired by AMETEK in 2000.
"I'm actually returning to my roots," notes Mr. Keyser. "What drew me back was my familiarity with the markets, distribution channels and the people I worked with over the years. Looking ahead, my goals are to strengthen our position in North America, while pursuing opportunities in global markets."
