HAWE Crafts New Executive Leadership Team

Appointments include two new promotions to CEO and CSO, and two additional regional sales managers for the United States and Eastern Canada.

HAWE North America, a provider of modular hydraulic components and systems including pumps, valves, power units, and electronics, announces the newest promotions within its Executive Leadership team. Robert “Bob” Pettit has been promoted from the role as Chief Technical Officer to Chief Executive Officer, and David “Dave” Stagg will take on the role of Chief Sales Officer from his previous position as North American Sales Manager.

Bob began working with HAWE North America in 1997, and has been part of the company’s leadership team for more than 20 years. He is experienced with managing sales and marketing teams, as well as engineering teams.

Bob Petit takes on the role of Chief Executive Officer for HAWE North America. 

Dave started working at HAWE NA in 2013 after the company acquired Pacific Fluid Systems.  He has held the positions of Regional Sales Manager and North American Sales.  Dave manages a sales team that covers the US and Canada.

“I have the utmost confidence in the people, high quality products and services we provide at HAWE North America.  We are executing our growth plans through both organic growth and potential acquisitions in North America,” says Bob.

HAWE also added two additional regional sales managers, Paul Pritchard and Milan Markovich to their sales force in early October.  Paul will cover the southeast United States and Milan will cover the northeast United States and Eastern Canada.
