Separation technology supplier Eriez has selected Jaisen Kohmuench for the newly created position of chief operating officer (COO).
Eriez President and CEO Lukas Guenthardt said that, as COO, Kohmuench will manage all Eriez’ major operations, including Eriez USA, Eriez Global Flotation and Eriez international businesses. He will continue to work closely with corporate executives and functional leaders to ensure Eriez’ sustained strategic growth.
Over 20 years, Kohmuench has steadily ascended in the organization across multiple business areas and geographies. A seasoned member of the Eriez corporate leadership team, he served most recently as vice president – international, a position he held for three years before accepting this latest promotion to COO.
Kohmuench has spent the entirety of his career with Eriez, joining the company in 2000 as a process engineer.
“From his earliest days in research and development, through his role managing the U.S. Flotation group and later in an overseas assignment as managing director for Eriez Australia, Jaisen has distinguished himself as a talented leader with tremendous financial and operational acumen,” said Guenthardt.
“He has developed and directed immediate and long-term business plans and profitable growth initiatives across Eriez’ global magnetic, flotation and service operations sectors.”
The new executive has also been credited as an inventor on more than a dozen patents and has authored numerous technical papers for prominent scientific and technical journals.
