Athena’s machine business has been on the rise since opening the new 155,000 square foot (14,400 m2) facility in Vaughan. This facility allows Athena to compete on a global basis, due to automotive-style just-in-time assembly of machines.
To better serve the expanding customer base, Athena is making organizational changes.
Harold Luttmann has taken over as acting CEO, in addition to his current role of Chief Operations Officer.
A Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) will be added to the management team shortly. Founder Robert Schad has temporarily assumed this responsibility.
The CCO will be responsible for Sales, Marketing, Finance and Human Resources, as well as for growing the global sales and service network. A service representative is already stationed in the Pennsylvania-Ohio area, with Atlanta, Chicago, and Frankfurt am Main (Germany) to follow.
