Appoints presidents to head three regions of the Americas, EMEA and Asia
Pump Solutions Group (PSG), a manufacturer of industrial pumps and related flow control technologies, has made a number of changes within its corporate organisational structure to enable it to meet future demands of scale, accountability and growth.
PSG, which is a division of Dover Corporation in the US, will be geographically structured within three main regions including the Americas; Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA); and Asia.
To lead this new structure, the firm has promoted three executives to manage all operational and commercial functions within it: Ueli Thuerig, previously President of PSG Europe, will become President of the newly created PSG EMEA; Karl Buscher, previously Senior Vice President, PSG Commercial, will take the newly created position of President of PSG Americas; while David Wang, previously Vice President of Sales and Business Development, Asia-Pacific, will move up to the newly created role of President of PSG Asia.
Thuerig came to PSG in 2012 when it acquired Maag, an Oberglatt, Switzerland-based manufacturer of internal gear pump and pelletising system technologies. He had been with Maag since 1990, in that time holding a variety of leadership positions.
Buscher joined PSG in November 2011 as Senior Vice President for the newly created PSG Commercial organisation. Prior to arriving at PSG, Buscher spent more than 20 years with the ITT Corporation.
Wang has been with PSG since 2010 and most recently held the role of Vice President of Sales and Business Development, Asia-Pacific. Before joining PSG, he worked for SPX Flow Technology, Tenaris/Exiros and PepsiCo – Frito Lay.
Despite the restructuring, PSG’s strategy will continue to be based on satisfying the needs of its customers within its core vertical market segments, including Energy, Chemical, Hygienic and Polymers. In addition, some internal functions, such as human resources, marketing, mergers and acquisitions, will continue to support all regional areas from a global perspective.
