Dellner names U.S. wind sales manager


Heavy-duty brake manufacturer Dellner Bubenzer USA Inc. has named Richard Burgos head of sales — wind (Americas). Burgos is bilingual and will oversee sales of the complete wind portfolio from the Dellner Bubenzer and Dellner Hydratech catalogs. He brings 25 years of experience, having spent the last decade with a focus on business development in Latin markets for one of the world’s biggest wind-turbine manufacturers.

“I want to become an expert at renewable energy and, eventually, take that experience to educate the next generation of sales professionals,” Burgos said. “Sustainability is the way to go, and renewable energy is a fundamental foundation to using less fossil fuel. The wind industry is still in the infancy of implementation, and many countries are looking to either expand or implement renewable energy. This position allows me to pioneer ongoing adoption of these principles, supported by a world-class suite of products.”

Burgos started in sales after completing a term in the U.S. Marine Corps. His first job was selling consumer electronics before transitioning into wireless platforms, Internet of Things, data analytics, and eventually joining General Electric. There, he became global account director, managing the largest pump manufacturing company globally and was promoted to director of sales — Latin America for GE Power Conversion. Burgos will represent the whole Dellner Bubenzer (legacy Pintsch Bubenzer, JHS, Dellner) and Dellner Hydratech (legacy Hydratech Industries) ranges following ongoing group-level expansion.

“Few people acknowledge that, by country, we are behind only China right now for the most installed capacity,” said Joel Cox, Dellner Bubenzer’s managing director of sales and global sales director (Americas). “That means, as a manufacturer of high-performance disc and drum brakes for severe duty applications, we must position ourselves accordingly — and we’re doing just that. We see our wind-energy business doubling in quick time, but we need the right leadership — like Richard — to realize that potential.”
