Ezio Viti has been promoted to regional sales director for the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region for United States-based equipment maker Eriez. The announcement was made by Senior Director of Asia-Pacific Operations and Strategy Jaisen Kohmuench.
“Ezio will be tasked with directing our APAC sales efforts, including management of sales agents, representatives and resellers within this market,” says Kohmuench. “This will include driving initiatives, measuring results and ensuring a focus on this geographical area which stretches from Australia through Southeast Asia.”
Adds Kohmuench, “In addition to his new responsibilities, Ezio will maintain current sales duties with Eriez-Australia. Ezio will report locally to the managing director of Eriez-Australia James Cooke and the overall strategy within the Asia-Pacific region will be coordinated at the global level.”
Viti is a mechanical engineer with more than three decades of experience in the mining, resource recovery, wastewater and general process industries. He previously worked at Linatex Australia Pty. Ltd. (now Weir Minerals) and then served as director of Steinert Australia Pty. Ltd. prior to joining Eriez-Australia as sales director in 2017.
Continues Kohmuench “While at Eriez-Australia, Ezio has been concentrating on increasing our company’s sales presence in the growing Indonesian market. The addition of the Southeast Asia region is a natural progression of his job duties and allows for the establishment of a clear and coordinated strategy within the region.” According to Eriez, Viti will work with sales director of Eriez-China David Fan and sales manager of Southeast Asia Sky Dong to coordinate the multi-office efforts.
