The Malaysian as well as the Asia Pacific's supply chain sector will benefit from supply chain solutions firm Intermec's announcement of a new head for the region, said the company.
Effective immediately, Mike Muller is Intermec Asia Pacific's new vice president and general manager, said Intermec senior vice president of global sales, Jim McDonnell. "Mike's role will focus on growing the current sales and channel business structure to a full-scale business model, as well as developing and executing competitive strategies for the growing Chinese market and the Asia Pacific as a whole."
McDonnell said Muller replaces Jansen Ek, who left Intermec on 29 July 2011. "During Jansen's three years at Intermec, he has made major advancements in sales and channels development, as well as built a strong and motivated team that works collaboratively across all functions within the Asia Pacific."
"I am pleased to have joined Intermec at an exciting time in the company's development. Malaysia and the Asia Pacific supply chain sector is a rapidly evolving market and customers across the region have varied technology needs," said Intermec's Muller. "Ensuring the right technology is available for the right local conditions is critical and is a challenge I am confident Intermec will meet."
Muller's last role was as vice president of Motorola's enterprise mobility business for the Asia Pacific. Prior to the Motorola acquisition, he was the Asia Pacific vice president of Symbol Technologies. He also previously spent 16 years at HP where he held a number of senior Asia Pacific leadership roles in sales, channel management, marketing operations and services.
"Jansen has been driving strong results, yielding more than 100 per cent quarterly performance results, with consistent performance across all sub-regions for the last eight quarters. Intermec Asia Pacific is a stronger organisation now than it was three years ago," said McDonnell. "I would like to personally thank Jansen for his time at Intermec and wish him well in the next chapter of his life."
