Gebr. Pfeiffer’s subsidiaries in the USA and Malaysia under new management

Gebr. Pfeiffer has appointed Timothy Burden as President of Gebr. Pfeiffer, Inc., who took over the reins at the Florida/USA subsidiary starting 01.01.2020.

Since joining Gebr. Pfeiffer in 2017, Tim Burden has been successful as Managing Director Malaysia, overseeing sales and operations in the company’s Asian subsidiary. Prior to joining Gebr. Pfeiffer, Burden had over 10 years of sales management experience within the industry.

Tim Burden grew up in the UK where he studied at Queen’s University Belfast and The University of Southampton achieving his Postgraduate Diploma in Engineering in 2004.

In order to ensure that the management of the Asian subsidiary in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia continues to be in good hands, Vesa Peurakari took the helm from Tim Burden, also starting on 01.01.2020.

Vesa Peurakari grew up in Finland and Sweden. After completing his mechanical engineering studies (BSc) in Gothenburg/Sweden, he was successful for many years in the machinery industry. He is an experienced sales, project and service manager and a strong sales professional, skilled in negotiation, operational management, international business, strategic sourcing and corporate management.

He will lead a team of currently eight employees at Gebr. Pfeiffer’s Malaysia office. After the subsidiary’s establishment in 2016, at that time still a representation, the subsidiary is overseeing the sales of new machinery and after-sales service for the entire Southeast Asian region. Gebr. Pfeiffer is glad to have won Vesa Peurakari as a suitable successor to take over Tim Burden’s responsibilities.
