Hoeganaes Corporation names Jim Shaul as its new Vice President, Sales & Marketing

June 6, 2012


Hoeganaes Corporation, Cinnaminson, New Jersey, USA, has announced the appointment of Jim Shaul to the position of Vice President, Sales and Marketing. He will replace Bill Michael effective July 1, 2012 and report to Manfred Weber, CEO, GKN Powder Metallurgy.

Shaul holds a Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Technology from the Buffalo State’s SUNY College and a Master’s degree from Rochester’s Simon Business School. He currently lives in Rochester Hills, Michigan.

Shaul’s primary responsibilities will be the direction of all global sales and marketing efforts for Hoeganaes Corporation. He has over 30 years of industrial experience; initially with Trico Products, where he spent 23 years in various capacities, initially as Program Manager and then progressing to Vice President, Sales and Engineering.

Shaul joined GKN Sinter Metals in 2005 as the Sales Director responsible for the GM and Delphi accounts. He then moved on to numerous other positions, with his most recent position as Executive Director, Sales & Marketing, for all the major automotive accounts.

In addition to Shaul’s sales and engineering experience, he also brings to Hoeganaes a unique outlook on operations, which will provide a more thorough understanding of PM’s products and processes, coupled with his years of working with end-user customers.  This degree of experience will greatly benefit Hoeganaes’ effort to continue to foster growth and expansion of the PM applications in the metal-working market.

“Jim and Bill will work together to achieve a seamless transition, maintaining the excellence service for their customers and markets over the coming months,” stated Hoeganaes.
