Dr. Johannes Heidenhain GmbH has announced the appointment of David Doyle as CEO of Heidenhain Corp., effective Oct. 1, 2018. At that time, Doyle will assume full responsibility for the Heidenhain Corp. customer-focused operations for the U.S., Canada and Mexico. This change will complete the succession plan for Rick Korte, current CEO of Heidenhain, who will be retiring at that time after more than 34 years of service.
“I am happy to announce the next phase of the succession plan for our North American operations, with the promotion of David Doyle to CEO,” said Korte. “I have the utmost confidence in David and trust he will continue to grow our business and support our customers with World Class service in all areas.”
Doyle started with Heidenhain in 2016 as VP of Sales & Marketing, bringing with him more than twenty-five years of experience in international capital equipment business and technical support management. He currently serves as its President and Managing Director.
“I want to thank Rick Korte for leading Heidenhain Corp. in tremendous growth over these many years, and for the guidance he has provided to not only myself, but to the many staff members who have called Heidenhain home for so long,” said Doyle. “I am looking forward to leading the Heidenhain Corp. team through the next phase of development and to reaching our growth objectives in North America by continuing to put our customers first.”
