New appointments at RD Industries
RD Industries, the Omaha, Nebraska-based manufacturer of closed loop chemical dispensing systems, has made two appointments to its senior team: Scott Neuhalfen (left) becomes director of quality and Stewart Auger (below) becomes vice president of global sales.
Scott will be responsible for all aspects of the production process including working directly with manufacturing and suppliers to ensure that the highest quality standards and process are in place to meet customer satisfaction.
His primary focus will be on enhancing the current technology applications to continue to ensure that the company continues to provide value and client satisfaction. His extensive knowledge and ability to facilitate the use of continuous improvement tools for solving problems and corrective action processes will accelerate the ability to focus on growth initiatives.
He brings a passion for helping people understand the real cost of quality along with 10-years of experience in quality control, leadership, product development and manufacturing from his work with Schneider Electric. Scott will report to Bill Hancock, vice president of operations and will work across all departments to celebrate the team's success.
Scott is a graduate of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering and is a certified Black Belt, and Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) expert through Lean Six Sigma. He also follows the Statistical Process Control (SPC) method for quality control.
Stewart will be leading the company's strategies for expansion into new international regions, further develop the US and Canada markets, and serve as a vital member of the management team. Having joined RD Industries in June 2017 as vice president of international sales, Stewart helped lead his teams to expand the global sales footprint and improve customer satisfaction.
During a 10-year career at Nordson EFD, he held numerous sales, operations and leadership positions from the European headquarters in the UK. His 25 years of experience span a variety of roles in finance, sales, project management and customer service where he innovated new 'go to' market strategies focused on new customer acquisition and customer excellence.
"It is my extreme pleasure to announce the promotion of Stewart Auger to vice president of global sales," said Tim McAllister, chief revenue officer. "Since joining the RD Industries team, Stewart has made numerous positive changes and is always seeking ways to help our customers reduce the risk of workplace spills, accidents, and injuries to improve safety within their organisation. His extensive knowledge and desire to contribute to our core values are a win for both RD Industries and our customers."
