AMETEK Land, the world leader in high accuracy, non-contact temperature measurement systems, has appointed Jesper Kristiansen as its Senior Director of Global Sales.
In his new role, Jesper will have full responsibility for leading AMETEK Land’s commercial strategies, working with the global sales teams to maintain its market-leading position in metals and power markets. He will also have the goal of accelerating growth in the glass, hydrocarbon, and industrial processing markets.
“I’d like to congratulate Jesper as he takes on this new leadership responsibility,” said Justin Smith, Divisional Vice President/Business Unit Manager of AMETEK Land. “He brings a wealth of expertise and experience in channel management to his new role. Jesper has a truly global perspective of our operations. He will be focused not only on our worldwide business strategy but also on supporting, driving, and strengthening our regional sales partners.”
The appointment is part of an organisational change that will see the Directors of Sales in America and Asia, and all European Regional Sales Managers, report directly to this new position. A member of the AMETEK team for 17 years, Jesper has held a variety of sales and marketing management roles and was most recently Director of Global Sales for the AMETEK Sensor Test & Calibration.
He has a degree in business studies from The Esbjerg Business Academy, Denmark, and lives in Hareskovby, north of the Danish capital Copenhagen, with his family.
