Heidenhain GmbH recently announced the appointment of David Doyle as CEO of Heidenhain Corp., effective October 1, 2018. At that time, Mr. Doyle will assume full responsibility for the company’s customer-focused operations for the United States, Canada and Mexico. This change will complete the succession plan for Rick Korte, current CEO, who will be retiring at that time after more than 34 years of service.

“I have the utmost confidence in David and trust he will continue to grow our business and support our customers with world-class service in all areas,” says Mr. Korte. 

Mr. Doyle started with the company in 2016 as vice president of sales and marketing, bringing with him more than 25 years of experience in international capital equipment business and technical support management. He currently serves as its president and managing director.

“I want to thank Rick Korte for leading the company in tremendous growth over these many years, and for the guidance he has provided to not only myself, but to the many staff members who have called Heidenhain home for so long,” says Mr. Doyle. “I am looking forward to leading the team through the next phase of development and to reaching our growth objectives in North America by continuing to put our customers first.”
