Machinex Technologies Inc. has appointed Brad Karst as North American sales manager, specializing in the MSW and organics markets. Karst has a background in the organics sector before becoming a sales manager at Machinex.
"I am so excited for the opportunity to grow alongside this great company! With my past experience in food waste diversion, we will together build a Machinex division to keep up with the growing demands in the industry," said Karst.
Karst has over 20 years of sales and leadership experience in the organics and MSW sectors. His responsibilities at Machinex include gathering information about organic diversion from landfills and MSW projects. In addition, he responds to clients' project challenges, budgeting, and goal setting while also working with the sales engineering department to develop proposals that meet or exceed the customer's individual needs. Karst is ultimately involved in every aspect of the project from beginning to end. In his new role, Karst is in charge of developing MSW and Organics sorting solutions in collaboration with clients to continue sharing Machinex's know-how in terms of new technologies and turnkey sorting systems. Responsible for the client's satisfaction, he will ensure powerful representation all over the United States and increase the company's sales force.
"Brad comes to Machinex with a wealth of knowledge in the organics sector of the waste business. With years of experience in organics recovery from the waste stream as either co-collection, SSO, or extraction from MSW streams, we felt Brad could raise the bar in our response to a dire market need. We are pleased to welcome him to the team," said Chris Hawn, CEO of Machinex Technologies Inc.
