Patrick McGady, National Sales Manager for Handtmann, Inc., recently announced new appointments of Brian Krumsee to a new Key Account Manager position and Mark Ivers to Handtmann Sales Territory Manager for Illinois and Indiana, a position previously held by Krumsee.

The expansion, according to McGady, has been made to stay a step ahead “in our support of customers as the processing industry continues adjusting to new technologies, marketplace demands, regulatory requirements and everchanging business management opportunities.”   

In today’s more complex operating environment "with its need for comprehensive solutions with longer lifecycles and more flexibility, we are growing our team and aligning our resources to link even more powerfully to our customers,” says McGady. “Knowing that every customer is unique, our goal is to support each in the ways that are most helpful to their success.”  


McGady notes that “Brian and Mark demonstrate the personal integrity and professional skills that fit perfectly with our corporate values that are so important to the way we operate, that are central to how we work and the quality of the relationships we develop.”  

According to McGady, Krumsee possesses a deep technical knowledge and a thorough understanding of both plant level operational demands as well as the larger service and business dynamics at play in today’s capital equipment evaluation and purchase decisions. “He listens thoughtfully and communicates effectively within all levels of an organization, making him a perfect fit for his new Key Account Manager role.”    

“Mark’s capital equipment and food industry experience in Illinois and Indiana are a great fit with his Territory Manager responsibilities. His track record of building strong client relationships and his experience in using quantitative processes for analyzing customer needs will also be a valuable asset as he evaluates and offers solutions. Mark’s experience matches our approach at Handtmann, and he is currently working with Brian to ensure a smooth transition into the territory.”
