Will direct North American sales and marketing efforts for tube & bar processing machine builder
Manufacturer of tube and bar processing machinery Rattunde Corporation today announces the appointment of Jon Hisey as Director of Business Development for North American operations. The announcement was made at company headquarters in Caledonia, Michigan (Grand Rapids) by the company President, Rick Stadler.
Mr. Hisey comes to Rattunde, a builder of metal tube & bar processing machines for high-production component manufacturing in the automotive, off-highway, consumer durable and other markets, from one of the leading industrial saw blade manufacturers, where he was the National Sales Manager and General Manager. Hisey had occasion to work with Rattunde during that time and became familiar with the company. He replaces Alec Banish, the former Director of Business Development, who left the company recently to pursue another career outside the industry.
For Rattunde, according to Rick Stadler, “Jon brings us a wealth of knowledge and experience from the cold sawing industry, plus he already had a good working knowledge of our machines. We have some very aggressive plans to grow the business and expand our market presence in North America. I know Jon will be a real asset in that process.”
Hisey assumed the position on October 23, 2017. He will operate from the company headquarters in Michigan. Jon is 53 and attended Michigan State University.
