Coatings engineer Markus Wieler has been hired as Global Business Development Manager at German supplier of coating materials Peters. The company said the 55-year-old will be responsible for the OEM management, coordinating and supervising processes with all end customers who use Peters products in their finished electronics. In particular, Wieler will focus further expanding the strongly growing Asian business. “Our business in Asia is developing well, our conformal coatings for electronics are in demand there. As to the circuit printing inks, we are in the process of intensifying relations,“ the Peters manager said.
Wieler worked for Peters from 1996 to 2009. Starting as an employee in the application technology department, he quickly rose to become deputy head of this department and finally sales manager.
“As an old Krefeld coatings engineer and long-time employee with valuable experience, Markus Wieler will be able to make a comeback in no time to the demanding and never boring subject of coating materials for electronics,“ said Peters CEO Ralf Schwartz. “Markus Wieler‘s expertise from his chemistry studies in Krefeld focused on coatings technology at the Institute for Coatings and Surface Chemistry will benefit him more than ever.”
Schwartz said that Wieler’s main responsibilities will be coordinating the expansion of the good relationships with major OEM companies and driving the growth of the Peters Group in Asian markets.
Wieler confirmed that he is looking forward to the challenge and has always felt very comfortable working for Peters.
