“Gareth will be vital to our continued strategic focus on the European Union,” Robert J. Bunting, the company’s owner and chief executive officer said. “He is aggressive and focused and will rapidly help us to grow our presence throughout the region. Gareth understands the applications of our products very well and that will translate into letting us solve customer issues quickly.”
Meese’s primary responsibilities will be sales in the U.K., the European Union, and the African continent. He is tasked with establishing an extensive network of distributors and engaging original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) for long-term partnerships. Gareth, who started with MAL in May 2009, will also be instrumental in new product development and developing new distribution channels.
“This is an exciting time to be a part of launching Bunting Magnetics products into Europe. Our quality is tough to equal and will fill a void in the marketplace,” Meese said. “Through our efforts, we will be able to quickly build upon the 50 years of experience and history of the company and establish Bunting as the leader for magnetic separation products in the rapidly developing European market.”
Meese holds a Bachelor of Science degree in physics from the University of Wales in Cardiff. Gareth has more than eight years of sales experience primarily in the financial services, factory automation, and industrial equipment industries. Gareth will be based at MAL headquarters in Berkhamsted.
