Emerson undertakes organisational restructure

Emerson has announced a new organizational structure for its Commercial and Residential Solutions business in Europe.

The restructure is designed to increase customer focus and support the company’s transformation into a comprehensive global solution provider across all markets, from cold chain to residential and commercial buildings.

In 2015, Emerson started a strategic repositioning of its business by streamlining its five business platforms into two: Emerson Automation Solutions and Emerson Commercial and Residential Solutions.

This allowed Emerson to optimise its portfolio to focus on core business and competencies, enhancing growth and investment opportunities and  strengthening its culture of innovation-driven product and solution development.

Jean Janssen, president of Emerson Commercial and Residential Solutions Europe, commented: “This organisational change is focused on aligning our European sales and marketing teams around core markets and channels. It keeps Emerson Commercial and Residential Solutions Europe consistent with Emerson’s global strategic repositioning.”

The new sales organization is led by Rainer Dietrich, vice president of sales for Europe, with the support of a team of long-time Emerson executives.

Mr Dietrich will continue leading the sales of core refrigeration and comfort products in Europe, including compressors and controls sold through the OEM and Wholesale channels. In addition, he will be responsible for newly formed teams dedicated to Electronics and Solutions, now including the Cargo and the Retail Solutions Business.

To further strengthen the solutions approach with OEM partners, Stephane Bertagnolio has been promoted to director of OEM solutions development and sales. Mr Bertagnolio will lead a dedicated team of experts in electronics and HVACR systems, reporting to Mr Dietrich. 

This team comes with a deep understanding of components, systems and data driven algorithms that are the essence of high-performing integrated solutions.

This new organizational approach for Europe is not expected to affect current sales channel structures.
