Cas­sid­ian ap­points Peter Gutsmiedl as first Head of Asia-pa­cific


Cas­sid­ian has ap­pointed Peter Gutsmiedl as the com­pany’s head of op­er­a­tions in Asi­aPa­cific. Gutsmiedl takes up this newly cre­ated role in ad­di­tion to his po­si­tion as In­dia CEO.

Gutsmiedl’s ad­di­tional re­spon­si­bil­ity for the re­gion re­flects a re­align­ment of Cas­sid­ian’s busi­ness struc­ture. To bet­ter tap growth op­por­tu­ni­ties world­wide, Cas­sid­ian has re­or­gan­ised its newly in­te­grated Sales and In­ter­na­tional Op­er­a­tions Di­vi­sion along the lines of three ma­jor re­gions: Asia-Pa­cific, Amer­i­cas and Europe, Mid­dle East & Africa (EMEA). As the in-charge of Asia Pa­cific, Gutsmiedl sup­ports the re­cently ap­pointed Cas­sid­ian Chief Sales Of­fi­cer Chris­tian Scherer.

“In­dia plays a strate­gic role for us and con­tin­ues to be the main fo­cus in Asia”, ex­plains Cas­sid­ian CEO Bern­hard Ger­w­ert. “In ad­di­tion to fur­ther in­creas­ing our in­dus­trial foot­print in In­dia, we also plan to tap con­sid­er­able growth po­ten­tial in the wider re­gion.”

Wel­com­ing his new re­spon­si­bil­ity, Gutsmiedl said: “I am look­ing for­ward to ex­pand­ing Cas­sid­ian’s In­dian op­er­a­tions into a spring­board for strong and sus­tained growth in Asia-Pa­cific. The ca­pa­bil­i­ties at our En­gi­neer­ing Cen­ter in Bengaluru al­low Cas­sid­ian to cus­tom­ize prod­ucts from our global port­fo­lio ac­cord­ing to lo­cal re­quire­ments. This gives Cas­sid­ian a com­pet­i­tive ad­van­tage in In­dia which we can also lever­age to tar­get other Asian mar­kets with sim­i­lar re­quire­ments.”

Be­sides com­bat air­craft op­por­tu­ni­ties, Cas­sid­ian sees po­ten­tial es­pe­cially in the ar­eas of pro­fes­sional mo­bile ra­dio, avion­ics for fighter air­craft and he­li­copters, radar/EW sys­tems and bor­der con­trol sys­tems and in­fra­struc­ture in the re­gion.
