Walla Walla, WA — Steve Johnson has been appointed senior director for Latin America and Asia sales by Key Technology, Inc.
He will be responsible for managing sales activities in Latin America, Asia Pacific, Australia and New Zealand. In addition, he will continue some duties from his previous position as senior director of marketing and lead the company’s worldwide marketing activities, Key reports.
Steve Pellegrino, senior vice-president of global sales, says: “These intercontinental regions have always been very important to Key. Now, we have a tremendous opportunity to expand in these growing regions because we have a wider variety of solutions, including the most complete source of belt- and chute-fed sorting technologies as a result of our merger with Visys this past year.”
With more than 25 years in the industry, Johnson served as vice-president and general manager for Gordon Composites, Inc. before joining Key nearly a decade ago.
