Kiessling Appointed President of Heidelberg Americas
ATLANTA—Marcel Kiessling has taken the helm as president of Heidelberg Americas, based here, which covers the sales regions of the United States, Canada, Mexico and South America.
Kiessling is the former head of the Germany/Switzerland market center and president of Heidelberger Druckmaschinen Vertrieb Deutschland. He joined the company in 1989.
Werner Albrecht has assumed the two roles previously held by Kiessling. Albrecht, who joined the company in 1978, was most recently president of Heidelberg Web Systems in Dover, NH, until its acquisition by Goss International.
As part of the restructuring the company announced in late 2003, the worldwide sales organization's original seven market centers were grouped into three key regions—Europe/Middle East/Africa, North and South America, and Asia Pacific. North and South America had been overseen by CEO Bernhard Schreier on a temporary basis.
