Greg Wood has been appointed to the new executive-level position of vice president, Advanced Technology Systems, Asia.

Nordson Corp. recently announced the promotion of Greg Wood to the new executive-level position of vice president, Advanced Technology Systems, Asia. In his new role, Wood will be tasked with enhancing customer service, driving synergies across the segment’s product lines and capturing rapid growth opportunities throughout the region while providing additional local senior leadership.

Wood will report to Advanced Technology Systems Senior Vice President John Keane. “Our strategy and execution in Asia are crucial to the continued success of Nordson’s Advanced Technology segment,” Keane said. “While Nordson currently has strong engineering, production, applications, marketing and sales capabilities throughout the region, Greg Wood will bring additional focus, expertise, and leadership to provide an even greater level of service to our customers. Greg is an ideal candidate for this position, having led the commercial activities of our Nordson ASYMTEK product line for more than 10 years. He has deep knowledge of the customers and end markets in the region, and his daily presence in this region will serve to improve our communication lines and increase our understanding and insight into the elements critical to our Asian customers.”

Wood joined Nordson ASYMTEK in 2000 as a key account manager and was named vice president of Sales and Marketing in 2006. In that role, he directed the global business development, marketing and sales activities for Nordson ASYMTEK products, growing the business to all-time records in sales and profits. In his new position, Wood will be responsible for all Nordson ASYMTEK and Nordson EFD personnel and activities in Asia, as well as oversight of Advanced Technology segment strategy, structure, and staffing in the region.
