Gisbert Ledvon has joined Heidenhain Corp. as the TNC business development manager in North America.
With over 20 years of extensive corporate industrial machine business experience, Ledvon assumed this new position earlier this year and is responsible for growing the CNC control side of the Heidenhain business in this region.
The company's CNC control models are referred to as TNCs and are growing in market share in North America, says Heidenhain. Ledvon is responsible for developing a strategy to drive technical value and commercial demand for the TNC controls at the end user and OEM levels and reports directly to the new CEO David Doyle.
In addition, Ledvon is charged with leading a team of five axis machining, programming and technology specialists at the company's North American subsidiary in Schaumburg, IL. Prior to joining Heidenhain, Ledvon worked at GF Machining Solutions as the director of business development and also served as applications manager prior to that.
