As part of its global expansion strategy, Quantron AG is expanding its international sales team. As Global Sales Director, Utz Rachner will be responsible for setting up and expanding the international sales team and sales partners at QUANTRON.
Rachner most recently worked at Mercedes-Benz as head of Sales & Marketing General Distributors. He was responsible for more than 130 markets in South America, Africa, Middle East, Southeast Asia and Europe. Previously, he was senior general manager operative sales Europe at Mitsubishi Motors.
“I am very much looking forward to a very positive global launch with the QUANTRON team and to win over the rapidly growing potential of the international commercial vehicle markets through our attractive range of battery-electric and hydrogen-powered vehicles along with our system solutions,” said Rachner. “At the same time, we can also offer our customers our complete ecosystem, Quantron-as-a-Service, as a sustainable 360-degree solution.”
Michael Perschke, CEO of Quantron AG, commented, “With our QUANTRON brand vehicles as well as with the retrofitting business that has already been successfully established in Europe, we are targeting additional international markets. Our current focus is on developing the hydrogen ecosystem with vehicles and the corresponding infrastructure. Here we are looking more closely at North America and would like to drive forward our hydrogen offensive there together with our partner, Ballard Power Systems. With Utz Rachner’s international experience, we are ideally positioned to achieve these global objectives. I am very pleased to welcome him to our team.”
Quantron AG also is expanding its team in other important areas of the company. In the meantime, more than 100 employees from four generations are now employed. More than 50% of them are active in the technical R&D and product areas. The international team is highly qualified with numerous staff members from the automotive industry and is strongly diversified with its 14 nationalities from such countries as the U.S., Japan and, since June, also from the Ukraine.
