Citect Germany is investing for future business growth, with the appointment of Daniel Harings as sales executive for CitectSCADA, Citect's market- leading, control, monitoring and reporting package. Harings combines qualifications in international trade and business administration with experience of automation and satellite communications technologies.
Haring's brief is to expand sales of CitectSCADA and associated products by fostering closer links with Citect's integration partners (CIP) and by actively prospecting for new business opportunities. Prior to joining, Citect, Harings had three years' sales experience in the automation sector working for Keyence Germany.

This new position helps me to develop new business segments; it allows me to take on more responsibility, and provides the perfect platform for future advancement with a company that is going places."
Kornelia Kirchner, German Country Manager for Citect, adds: "Now is a particularly exciting time to be joining Citect. Citect is the largest independent SCADA vendor in the world, and is also achieving impressive growth with its AMPLA MES system. The synergy of these two products means that Citect is at the forefront in delivering the real-time improvements in productivity and efficiency, and the cost reductions demanded by global industry. At the same time, this synergy is bridging the gap between industrial automation and business IT systems, ensuring that management have true real time information flow, without compromising system performance and reliability."
