Jim has lived and worked in multiple world areas and has been a division president. I am confident that he will be a great addition to my leadership team."
"One thing that I've learned working with our customers in different world areas is that they all want to run their plants more efficiently; saving energy, monitoring equipment health and asset optimization," said Jim Nyquist, new president of global sales for Emerson Process Management. "PlantWeb is designed to help with these very tasks. Right now, we have enormous interest in wireless technology and Emerson is on the cutting edge. It is an exciting time for Emerson Process Management."
