Würth Industry North America promotes three

Three employees for Würth Industry North America (WINA) will take on new roles and positions to oversee projected top line growth and expansion.

Eric Wilk, former director of key accounts, will transition to managing director for Würth owned company, Oliver H. Van Horn (OVH). Jim Pacione, current CEO and managing director of OVH, will support the transition through May 1.

Marco Rodriguez will take over as director of key accounts for WINA and oversee all national accounts, leading company efforts to maintain and expand relationships with large, multi-location customers. Rodriguez will represent the entire range of Würth products and services, lead customer planning cycles, be the point of continuity for customer headquarters, and ensure effective communication between the customer and WINA locations. He will also be the point of contact with Würth Industry companies in Europe and Asia.

Rodriguez comes to Würth from LoneStar Group, where he served as managing director for the manufacturer and supplier of high-performance fasteners, sealing, precision-engineered components, and pipeline packages.

Also new to the WINA management team is Victor Campos, who will serve as general manager for Würth Industry de Mexico. 

Campos has extensive management and financial experience in international multicultural environments. He has held management positions for several different companies in the manufacturing industry in Mexico and worked with a diverse product range such as electronics, fiber optics, disposable medical supplies, and agriculture among others. 

“The WINA executive team additions come at a great time as we continue to successfully implement our long-term strategies of double digit sales growth and improving operational synergies throughout our group. In the end, business is people and for us our people are our most important resource,” said Marc Strandquist, executive vice president responsible for Würth Industry of North America.
