Lenze Americas announced the appointment of Robert Gradischnig to the position of director, technical services.  As the newest member of the Lenze Americas business leadership team, Gradischnig is chiefly responsible for Lenze technical services and end-to-end support of mechanical and system engineering customers in North America.

“Robert’s outstanding sales achievements, coupled with his engineering background, give him a unique perspective and approach to technical support through all phases of the machine building process,” said Chuck Edwards, president, Lenze Americas.  “His ability to rethink existing systems translates into the implementation of better solutions to balance efficiency and productivity—and deliver maximum benefit to OEM customers and plant operators.”

In more than 20 years of industrial sales and marketing experience, Gradischnig consistently demonstrated the importance of exceeding customer expectations and successfully delivering quality solutions to their design challenges.  In his new role, he manages all aspects of pre- and post-sales technical support capabilities across a full range of sales channels, customers, products, applications and systems.

Gradischnig completed technical engineering studies at HTBLA Elektrotechnik and additional business economics studies at the University Mittweida, Germany.  After joining the Lenze Austria team in 1993 as an application engineer, he earned a key account manager position there, before transferring in 2011 to a business development role driving marketing strategy and sales of electromechanical products at Lenze in the Americas.
