Gallus, Inc. has announced the addition of Frank Hasselberg as the company’s new western US sales manager, starting January 1, 2012. Previously, Hasselberg was executive vice president for Kocher + Beck USA, a manufacturer of solid and flexible dies based in Lenexa, KS. Having played a pivotal role in establishing and growing the tooling manufacturer over his 15 year tenure, he came to Gallus seeking a new challenge. His knowledge of printing and his technical skills make him a perfect match for Gallus’ engineered process approach, the company says, and his wide industry connections give him a real advantage in Gallus’ relationship-based sales organization.
“Frank’s skills and industry contacts are a welcome addition to the Gallus sales organization. His proven performance with Kocher + Beck and his knowledge of engineered equipment will translate very well to greater success for Gallus and our North American customers," says Brian Bishop, president of Gallus, Inc.
As part of the appointment, Gallus has reorganized its sales management structure. Starting on January 1, 2012, the three sales managers will represent the full line of Gallus label printing presses in each of their North America regions.
