Scottsdale, AZ–March 3, 2005–The PROFIBUS Trade Organization (PTO) has appointed Carl Henning as Director of PROFINET Marketing. Mr. Henning will head all marketing activities for PROFINET, the open Industrial Ethernet standard for automation. "It's good to have Carl back on the PROFIBUS team," said Michael Bryant, Executive Director of the PTO. "His PROFIBUS experience dates back to the founding of the PTO in 1994 when he served on the initial Board of Directors. Since Carl has attended almost every PTO General Assembly meeting these past ten years, he has remained connected to the PROFIBUS community." Mr. Henning will cover all aspects of PROFINET promotion including the print advertising, web, public relations, editorial contributions, and seminars. "This is an exciting time to re-engage PROFIBUS with the emergence of PROFINET," Henning said. "The industry will benefit greatly from this widely supported standard.
