Wacker Neuson has appointed Gert Reichetseder as president/CEO - North America. As part of his new role, Reichetseder will act as spokesperson for the North American Executive Management Board, which includes Johannes Schulze Vohren, executive VP sales & marketing, and Ryan Gile, executive VP operations/COO.

Reichetseder has served as commercial director of Wacker Neuson’s largest production plant in Linz, Austria, since 2011. His international career also includes several senior-level positions with Engel Global. 

The move supports Wacker Neuson’s 2018 realignment of Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, facilities, which now includes Will Wright as VP of product engineering and purchasing, and Raimund Linder as VP of manufacturing and production administration.

“This is a big transition for me and my wife,” Reichetseder said in a press release. “As I am changing my home base from Austria to Milwaukee, after having been in charge of our Linz facility for the past eight years. However, the potential of Wacker Neuson in North America reinforced my decision for this new assignment.”
