The Board of Directors of Yokogawa Electric Corporation resolved in a meeting on the 19th February to appoint Herman van den Berg to the position of President of Yokogawa Europe B.V. Herman van den Berg succeeds Harry Hauptmeijer, who has been Yokogawa Europe's president since 2002 and will continue as director until the 1st October 2013 to support the transition.

Mr. van den Berg became involved in global projects and eventually became the global electrical, control and instrumentation manager for the company. He joined Yokogawa in 2005 as Managing Director for Yokogawa South Africa, and moved in 2011 to Yokogawa's European headquarters in Amersfoort, the Netherlands, as Vice President for delivery and service with the Industrial Automation Division.

Herman van den Berg believes that the secret of success in the automation sector is to get to know the customers' businesses and then use this knowledge to drive new innovations as well as partnering with the customers to realise mutual benefit.

"To be close to the customer, feeling their pulse, seeing their difficulties, living with them through their concerns and seeing how they attempt to address them are crucial factors in getting close to what is important for them and earn the right to share their benefits", he says.
