Agr International announced the appointments of Mr. Martin Küstner and Mr. Davide Bartoli to new strategic positions within the Agr organization. These appointments are a continuation of Agr’s multi-year plan to strengthen and expand its sales and service organizations in order to better support the distinct needs of customers throughout the world.
Mr. Martin Küstner, a twenty-year veteran of Agr International, will assume the position of International Sales Director. In this role, he will oversee all world-wide sales related activities, with the exception of the United States and Canada. Over the past 20 years, Mr. Küstner has advanced his career at Agr while thriving in positions of increasing responsibility. Previous to this post, Mr. Küstner headed Agr’s Asian operations where he was instrumental in establishing Agr’s sales and service center in Bangkok, Thailand, and was responsible for developing a regional sales network throughout Asia that has consistently contributed to Agr’s business growth.
Davide Bartoli, another twenty-year veteran of Agr, will take on the position of International Service Director. He will oversee all service and repair related activities outside of the United States and Canada. Over the past twenty years, Mr. Bartoli has served Agr in a number of roles including regional European Service Manager, Sales Engineer and, most recently, Director of Training. In his latest role, Mr. Bartoli applied his thorough knowledge of Agr equipment and implemented programs to train both Agr employees and customers throughout the world in the support and operation of Agr equipment. His knowledge and experience of technology to facilitate remote and virtual field support will prove invaluable in this new role, especially when faced with limitations on travel and face-to-face meetings due to COVID-19.
Both Mr. Küstner and Mr. Bartoli possess significant knowledge and experience with Agr’s customers, products and services. According to AGR COO Robert Cowden, “AGR and its international customers will benefit immensely as Martin Kustner and Davide Bartoli assume executive roles within AGR’s Sales and Service management team. Both individuals understand how to support their customers in order to consistently achieve operational success. These successes are a main ingredient to AGR’s longstanding, global franchise.”
