Danfoss has appointed Richard Hatcher as its new head of sales for its heating business. Hatcher’s responsibilities will extend throughout the United States and Canada, as well as Mexico and Latin America.

Hatcher, who previously was vice president of sales for Danfoss’ HVAC drives business, will now be responsible for advancing the company’s activities and portfolio for the heating market — including energy-saving hydronic controls and electric heating solutions.

“I look forward to continuing with a world-class company, joining an experienced and talented team, to deliver best-in-class products and real solutions to our customers in the Americas,” said Hatcher.

Prior to joining Danfoss in 2008, Hatcher spent nine years with General Electric where he held various leadership positions in HVAC and drives sales. He holds a degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Kentucky.
