Manager for Drive sales!

Markus Weber is the new Sales Manager of the WEG subsidiary Watt Drive Antriebstechnik GmbH (Watt Drive). Markus’ remit involves steering all sales activities, including field sales, internal sales and exports. As the new department head, he is responsible for approximately 20 sales staff in Austria. However, his role is not limited to the Austrian market, it also includes worldwide sales of Watt Drive products.

A key task is to further integrate WEG's extensive motor and automation portfolio for the Austrian market into Watt Drive’s sales structure and to boost sales of the geared motor specialist’s products at WEG's international branches.

Weber brings 20 years of sales experience to his new position and is very familiar with the Austrian market and drive technology. With a background in mechanical engineering, he joined WEG as Key Account Manager in Austria in 2009. Three years later, after Watt Drive was acquired by WEG in 2011, Weber assumed the position of Field Sales Manager at Watt Drive. Prior to his time at WEG, Weber spent three years as Motors Sales Manager for Austria and Eastern Europe at Lenze Antriebstechnik. He also worked at Rosenbauer International for many years as Area Manager of South America.

Weber is based at Watt Drive headquarters in Markt Piesting, (A), and reports to Wolfgang Meyer, Managing Director at Watt Drive. His successor in his previous position as Field Sales Manager is Thomas Listmayr, formerly Acting Sales Manager Austria.

"We are positioned in the market as an internationally active full-spectrum drive technology provider. We therefore want to reinforce the combined Watt Drive and WEG sales organisations at an international level. Weber is the perfect choice for the General Sales Manager position because he knows both organisations and technology portfolios very well having worked in sales at both Watt Drive and WEG. He also combines extensive knowledge of the Austrian market with international sales experience," comments Meyer.
