Nordson Announces Leadership Promotions

Nordson Corp. recently announced several promotions within its global leadership team. John Byers has been promoted to chief information officer, with global responsibility for leveraging information technology to support Nordson’s growth and performance goals. Byers has served in a range of leadership capacities in several functions since joining Nordson in 1994. As president of Nordson ASYMTEK since 2006, he was responsible for driving growth and improved profitability as the business was repeatedly recognized for innovation and customer service.

Peter Bierhuis has been named president of Nordson ASYMTEK, succeeding Byers. Since 1999, Bierhuis has served as president of Nordson MARCH, during which time he drove the business to significant global expansion and its current position as the industry leader in plasma processing technology and systems.

James Getty has been promoted to president of Nordson MARCH, succeeding Bierhuis. Getty most recently served as Nordson MARCH’s vice president of Applications and Business Development. Since joining Nordson in 2000, he has been responsible for the development and introduction of numerous products, as well as the continued penetration of the printed circuit board, semiconductor, and life sciences markets.

Phil Vere has been promoted to president of Nordson DAGE. Vere joined Nordson DAGE in 2007 and most recently served as managing director for Bond Testers. Under his guidance, Nordson DAGE expanded its industry-leading position in bond testers for the printed circuit board assembly and semiconductor industries while earning multiple awards for technology and innovation. He succeeds Steven Kew, who has decided to pursue other interests after leading Nordson DAGE since 2008.

“These promotions demonstrate the depth of our leadership team and bode well for the continued profitable growth of Nordson worldwide,” said John Keane, corporate officer and senior vice president of the Advanced Technology Systems segment.
