Diebold, Incorporated announced today that it has consolidated its international sales and service operations and promoted Michael J. Hillock to group vice president of international sales and service (ISS). Hillock will oversee all of the company’s international operations, which were formerly divided between two organizations: Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and Canada, Asia/Pacific and Latin America (CAPLA).
As part of the streamlined international sales and service organization the following positions will report to Hillock:
Ernesto R. Unanue, vice president and managing director, Latin America; the vice president and managing director for EMEA and the vice president and managing director for Asia/Pacific, both to be named later; Edwin Anderson, vice president, international service operations and support; and Jay Jaworski, manager, international finance. A director of international sales operations and support, a new position, will also be named later.
`This new organization represents the next step in our evolution as a global company,’ said Gregg A. Searle, president and chief operating officer. `We are consolidating the activities necessary to continue our aggressive expansion of acquisitions, joint ventures and partnerships outside the United States.
Searle added, `Mike Hillock’s experience makes him well suited for this new position. In his 19 years of service at Diebold, Hillock has been deeply involved in growing Diebold’s international operations.’
From 1986 to 1988, Hillock lived in Hong Kong and ran Diebold’s Asia/Pacific operations. He returned to the United States to become a division vice president where he ran a successful sales and service organization in the Eastern Division. Most recently, Hillock spent five years in London responsible for Diebold’s EMEA operation, including a one- year assignment inside IBM EMEA, managing its self-service business.
Diebold Canada, formerly a part of the CAPLA organization will be consolidated with North American Sales and Service (NASS). `The inclusion of the Diebold Canada organization into NASS will provide for a more streamlined and integrated organization that truly represents North American Sales and Service,` said Searle.
