SAF-Holland appoints President APAC

Equipment specialist, SAF-Holland, has appointed Mike Ginocchio as President APAC (Asia, Pacific, India), effective 1 January 2019.

In his role, Ginocchio will report to the CEO, Detlef Borghardt, and become a member of the Group Management Board. The appointment as President APAC relieves CEO Detlef Borghardt from his additional role as President of the APAC/China region.

Prior to his appointment as president, he held several leadership roles at SAF-Holland, his most recent being Vice President Asia Pacific.

In order to prepare for the Group's further growth and its ongoing focus on the emerging markets, the Group Management Board has decided to add the stand-alone APAC region to SAF-Holland’s business segments. As a result, the business segments as of 1January 2019, are now divided into the regions EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa), Americas (North and South America), China and APAC (Asia, Pacific, India). This change will also change the segment reporting of the regions mentioned.

“In appointing Mr. Mike Ginocchio, we are pleased to have a seasoned expert for the Asia region as our President of the APAC region and a member of the Group Management Board,” said Borghardt. “With our growth strategy already in place, SAF-Holland is continuously aligning its business and corporate structures with global developments.”
