Plexus Corp., a leading electronics engineering, manufacturing and aftermarket service provider for customers in the mid-to-low volume, higher complexity market sectors, today announced the appointment of Oliver Mihm, 43, as the new Regional President for the EMEA region.  With this appointment, Mr. Mihm assumes leadership responsibilities for the strategy and execution of all aspects of Plexus’ business within EMEA.  Mr. Mihm will be based out of the Plexus’ Darmstadt Design Center in Germany.

“I am excited about this opportunity as Plexus is in an excellent position for growth in the coming years in EMEA,” commented Mr. Mihm.  “With the establishment of our German subsidiary in 2011, the expansion of our UK facilities in 2012 and the opening of our new manufacturing site in Romania in 2013, we have laid crucial foundations for becoming a major player in Europe.  This enables our customers to work with us on a local level while taking advantage of the global network and expertise of Plexus as a whole.  My focus will be on increasing brand awareness, especially in the DACH region as Plexus continues our momentum gaining recognition in the marketplace.”

Todd Kelsey, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, commented, “EMEA and specifically Germany, remains a significant growth opportunity for Plexus necessitating strong leadership.  Throughout his 15-year tenure with Plexus, Oliver has established a solid record of success.  His experience and proactive leadership style will provide immense benefit to the EMEA team as they further develop strategies to expand Plexus’ market share in this important region.”

With that in mind, much of what follows is based on comments we learn about from our industry around the world, many of whom are not yet IPC members.
