Rockwell Automation has announced the appointment of Thomas Donato as President for the EMEA region (Europe, Middle East and Africa). Donato was previously Regional Vice President for Rockwell Automation in Canada.

Donato has 18 years of experience in the automation industry, including 11 years at Rockwell.
“Thomas’ extensive experience makes him the ideal candidate for this key leadership role,” said John McDermott, Rockwell Automation Senior Vice President, Global Sales and Marketing. “His record of building high-performance teams and developing leaders will help achieve our business goals in the EMEA region.”
“We’ll continue to build our business by supporting end user customers and machine builders in two ways,” explained Donato. “One is by helping end users realise that The Connected Enterprise is essential today for any company that wants to implement future advanced manufacturing strategies such as Industry 4.0. The other is by making integration seamless for our machine builders. These strategies will contribute to the success of both groups.”
