Eric Peterson will be based in our North American headquarters in Charlotte, NC. Peterson, who holds an MBA in Marketing from Indiana University and a BS in Accounting from the University of Illinois most recently led the Husqvarna Group’s retail handheld portfolio and has previously served as President of Sakrete of North America while at CRH/Oldcastle.
“I am honored to be selected as Fagus GreCon’s next CEO. It is a privilege to be a part of an organization with such a rich history of delivering innovative high-quality products and services that not only keep our customers safer but helps them reduce their costs,” Peterson says. In his role, Peterson will be working with the team leadership in establishing a strong infrastructure that will help the organization continue to deliver best-in-class products and services to our customers.
This addition of Peterson in Charlotte continues to build upon the organizational move from Portland, OR to Charlotte, NC that began 2 years ago. The move brought Fagus GreCon closer to many of our customers, allowing us to improve our team’s ability to reach our customer base and better assist customers with service visits, technical support and sales visits more quickly and efficiently. In addition, Fagus GreCon has extended our outreach by establishing a motivated team of outside service technicians to assist customers with their business needs across the United States, resulting in lowering service costs, and improving service and communications to customers.
These changes along with the business and growth plan that Eric and the team will be building upon for North America will carry the continued momentum from 2019 into the years to come.
