Ahaus Positions Sales Team for the Future

(l-r) Chuck Haager and Brian Keiser

Ahaus Tool and Engineering, Inc. announced that Brian Keiser will join Ahaus as the Director of Sales, while Chuck Haager will move into the newly-formed role of Director of Business Development.

"When working through strategic planning, we like to talk about how we approach the goal with strategies that are new or different or better than what we are currently doing," said Vice President and Co-Owner Jeff Sheridan. "This move came as a result of those strategy sessions. We definitely think that this shift in our leadership team will position us to continue our trajectory of growth as a company."

Haager's move to business development is a natural next step in his Ahaus career. He has spent all of his professional career in an engineering or sales role, starting as design engineer in the transportation industry and transitioning into a manufacturing engineering role in the automotive industry before landing at Ahaus.

"Being a customer of Ahaus, I had firsthand experience of what it was like working with their team, which included John Piehl, Lee Wise and many others," said Haager. "My 21 years here have served me well: five years as a project engineer, 11 years as a sales engineer serving our customers and the last five years as the sales manager working with our sales team."

President and co-owner Kevin Ahaus said, "Chuck's broad experience at Ahaus and knowledge of our company's capabilities make him a good fit for the new sales development role."

Keiser joins Ahaus with 21 years of experience in automotive and industrial manufacturing. In his previous role, he managed teams in sales, engineering and operations at different points in his career.

"I am fascinated with technology and automation," said Keiser. "I hold four patents, so I really enjoy engineering and technology. I am thrilled to be at Ahaus at this particular moment in their history. I believe adding strategic positions and aligning talent will put the company in a strong position for sustained and future growth."
