Berend Bracht, former CEO of Bosch Rexroth China and former head of the company’s U.S. industrial hydraulics operation, began his new duties as president and CEO of Bosch Rexroth’s U.S. operations on Jan. 1.

“We are pleased that we have an executive of Berend’s stature to take this important position and continue the forward momentum we have developed in the United States,” said Manfred Grundke, chairman of the executive board for parent company Bosch Rexroth AG.

Grundke said Bracht will continue Bosch Rexroth’s close relationships with distributors while developing new initiatives to enhance and promote the company’s technology leadership.

Bracht said he is looking forward to working within the U.S. market again.

Bracht replaces Wolfgang Dangel, who has led the U.S. subsidiary of the German-based company since April 2003. Dangel is leaving to accept a leadership position with the Schaeffler Group.
