Doosan Infracore Construction Equipment has appointed a new head for its European, Middle Eastern and African business.

Current VP EMEA region Martin Knoetgen will take on the role of president of the EMEA region on 1 June.

Appointed by CEO Tony Helsham, he will replace Scott Nelson who been overseeing the region since June 2010.

Helsham said that Nelson has decided to leave the company for personal reasons.

“I would like to thank Scott for his strong leadership and valued contributions to our company,” commented Helsham. “Delivering on our promise to our dealers and customers to provide quality, value-added products and services that support their business success is at the core of what we do. In finding a successor, it was important to appoint someone who embodies this promise in the same way as Scott has done as EMEA President.”

He added. “I am therefore pleased to announce that Martin Knoetgen is assuming the position of President of Doosan Infracore Construction Equipment – EMEA, reporting to me. Scott will remain on board as an advisor to assist with the transition through June 30.  Martin Knoetgen has served as VP for the past two years.

“With more than 15 years of general management and operations experience, Martin has a balanced leadership approach and a demonstrated ability to deliver on short-term goals while developing strategies and executing against the long-range plan.”

Prior to joining Doosan Infracore Construction Equipment, Martin Knoetgen served as the President and General Manager at Dalphi Metal, a subsidiary of TRW Automotive Holdings Corporation. He also spent more than three years as the Director of Operations in Europe and four years as Plant Manager at TRW.
