Effective from July 1 2015, Annette Doyle will take on the role of Managing Director of UK-based TRUMPF Limited. She succeeds Mr. Scott Simpson who will leave TRUMPF after more than 20 years to pursue his own individual projects.
Annette Doyle comes to TRUMPF Limited from TRUMPF Inc. in Farmington, US where she served as Head of Customer Training Centre and as Assembly Department Manager for TRUMPF’s TruLaser machines. Her department manufactures 350 machines a year and her production planning and Lean Manufacturing initiatives have enabled the company to increase production and quality goals during the economic rebound. In her role at TRUMPF Inc., Doyle has been recognised by The Manufacturing Institute, Deloitte, University of Phoenix, and the Society of Manufacturing Engineers with a Woman in Manufacturing STEP (Science, Technology, Engineering and Production) Award for excellence and leadership in manufacturing.
“I have lived in the United Kingdom before my time in the US and I always look back very positively on this time. Having worked in the service and manufacturing side of the TRUMPF business I feel confident and well-prepared for this transition. I look forward to officially joining TRUMPF Limited as we enter the new fiscal year, and strive to continue the positive growth and development of TRUMPF in the United Kingdom," says Mrs. Doyle.
Doyle holds a Bachelor degree in Business Administration and Mechanical Engineering as well as a Master of Science in Technology Management. In her new role as Managing Director, Doyle will be responsible for all TRUMPF business operations in the United Kingdom including product sales, customer service, technical training, product sales, and applications. She reports directly to Dr. rer. soc. Gerhard Rübling, Executive Vice President of the TRUMPF GmbH + Co. KG and Labour Director, responsible for human resources as well as sales and services.
