Med-Fit Systems, Inc., manufacturer of Nautilus® commercial products, announced today that Juergen Kopf has been promoted for the third time in just over two years. Effective Monday, June 24, Kopf’s new title will be Executive Vice President, International Sales & Global Marketing. Kopf’s responsibilities will be expanded to include overseeing marketing worldwide, including domestically. Previously, Kopf had been the guiding force for international marketing outside of the USA and Canada.
Kopf commented, "I am truly grateful and excited about the promotion and appreciate the trust and confidence of the company ownership. And I am even more excited about the possibilities and challenges that await us to advance our iconic brand to the next level with new programming and products."
Med-Fit Systems’ CEO, Dean Sbragia, said, “Juergen’s contributions to the company, including from a Board, sales management and organizational perspective have been invaluable. I have every confidence in Juergen’s success in his expanded role. His promotion is well deserved and will most certainly strengthen the company”
Kopf has been employed by Med-Fit Systems for nineteen years. In 1994, he joined the company as Director of Therapy Products. Kopf later advanced to Vice President of Sales and Operations. In February 2011, with Med-Fit Systems’ acquisition of Nautilus® commercial assets, Kopf took on the position of Director of International Sales. Soon thereafter, in January of 2012, Kopf was promoted to Vice President of International Sales and Marketing. This latest promotion marks the third rise in rank for Kopf in 28 months.
Sean Smith, COO of Med-Fit Systems, remarked, ”Congratulations to Juergen on his newest promotion. There is a reason for Juergen’s recent rapid advancement. He is among the most determined, self-motivated and resourceful in the company. These, among other reasons have resulted in new alliances, enormous successes and international expansion at an incredible rate for Nautilus® Commercial. His value to the company is considerable and we are so happy that he is on our team, rather than the competition’s.”
In previous statements regarding Kopf, CEO, Sbragia noted, “He is as close to irreplaceable as an employee can be, and I have stated before that if our roles were reversed, I would look forward to working for Juergen.”
