Key positions strengthened
In recent months, Vecoplan AG has continued to increase the number of sales staff in its most important growth markets and applications. Key positions are now held by the two new sales managers. They will ensure that employees can successfully operate together internationally and achieve the goals they have set. The sales managers are responsible for strategic planning and operational implementation. These tasks require a great deal of experience and know-how. This is why Vecoplan has been relying on Tim Hamer (38) in the Recycling | Waste division since the beginning of October. Tim has been with Vecoplan since 2004. The trained mechatronics engineer started at the recycling specialist as a commissioning engineer for shredding machines and complete waste, wood and recycling plants. In this role, he collaborated with customers worldwide on various projects, gaining extensive experience – especially in the area of machine control and drive concepts. After several years in the field, he then took over the development department for electrical control systems. Tim Hamer then moved into sales and was Area Sales Manager & Key Account Manager for Cement Applications from 2013 to 2019. Following these years, he took over the position of Head of Sales for Waste and Alternative Fuels after successful further training.
Kersten Beib is also new to his current position. He has been in charge of sales in the Wood | Biomass division since October. The 54-year-old can draw on a great deal of experience. He has been working for the wood processing industry since the beginning of his career in mechanical and plant engineering. The trained industrial clerk began his career at a mechanical engineering company. After in-service training, he worked there as an Area Sales Manager. In 2008, he moved to Vecoplan. Four years later, he went back to his old employer and took over the CEO position there. Now, almost ten years later, he is sales manager at Vecoplan. Kersten Beib has a solid knowledge of the market and products in the field of material processing and handling in the wood industry.
