SCHAUMBURG, IL, July 24, 2014 -- Rittal Corporation, the U.S. subsidiary of Rittal GmbH & Co. KG -- a global provider of solutions for industrial enclosures, power distribution, climate control, and IT infrastructure -- has named Gregg A. Holst as president, with responsibility for the entire North American market.

This decision follows the relocation of Rittal's headquarters to suburban Chicago in September 2013. "Since the company headquarters are located close to one of the major economic hubs (Chicago) on the continent, we have decided to concentrate the management there," said Christoph Caselitz, president of Rittal International.

Most recently, Holst served as president and COO of Japanese electronics group Omron. In that role, the electrical engineer dramatically strengthened the company's position in North and South America. Prior to Omron, he drove sales growth for Revere Electric Supply as executive vice president, operating in Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin. Holst has also held executive positions at Square D and General Electric.
