Roman Gaida joins Bürkert as CSO

From November 2023, Mr. Roman Gaida will be responsible for the global sales and marketing activities of Bürkert Fluid Control Systems as new Chief Sales Officer (CSO). After six years at Mitsubishi Electric Europe, he will henceforth complete the executive management team of the international fluidics specialist.

Starting 1 November, Roman Gaida will take over the vacant position of Chief Sales Officer (CSO) at Bürkert Fluid Control Systems in Ingelfingen and hence take over responsibility for the company’s global sales and marketing activities as a member of Bürkert’s executive management team.

Management team complete in November

"We are delighted to have gained a dynamic executive in Mr Gaida. He brings with him broad technical and international experience. It was important for both sides that we could establish a high degree of congruence in our values. We are convinced that Mr Gaida fits very well into the Bürkert culture, which is characterised by appreciation, respect and mutual trust," CEO Georg Stawowy reports on the recruitment.

Roman Gaida has extensive industrial experience in various roles and internationally operating companies: After training as a metal cutting mechanic and subsequently working in various positions at Wieland-Werke in Ulm, as well as earning a degree in industrial engineering and an Executive MBA in Technology Management, he was responsible for Business Development Plasma Coating at OC Oerlikon Balzers. Since 2017, Gaida has been responsible for EMEA sales, marketing, service and engineering for CNC products in the Europe, Middle East and Africa regions at Mitsubishi Electric Europe. He is also part of Mitsubishi's European factory automation leadership team.

Continuing Bürkert's success story

For Roman Gaida, it is primarily "the cultural fit as well as the Bürkert technology and its diverse areas of application" that have convinced him in particular. "Furthermore, despite its international orientation, Bürkert is characterised by a strong customer centricity, which is especially important in solution selling. The impressive innovative strength and the committed team have significantly influenced my decision. I look forward to continuing to grow as CSO together with the team and to continuing Bürkert's success story," Gaida continues.

As CSO, Roman Gaida will form the executive management team of the family company Bürkert Fluid Control Systems together with CEO Georg Stawowy, Meike Querengässer (CPO/CHRO), Stefan Müller (CTO) and Dr. Udo Gais (CFO).
