St. Louis, Missouri-based Emerson, a leader in automated solutions, recently announced that Michael H. Train will become Executive Vice President (VP) and Group Business Leader of Emerson’s newly structured Automation Solutions business, effective May 1. He succeeds Steven A. Sonnenberg, who will be Chairman of the business.
Automation Solutions will become one of two main business platforms for Emerson under a repositioning plan that began last year. The business will contain the operations and leading brands of Process Management, ASCO, Branson and Appleton units. Both Train and Sonnenberg will report directly to Emerson Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, David N. Farr.
Train has been president of Emerson Process Management global sales since 2010. Before that he headed its Rosemount unit after returning to the United States in 2008 from Singapore, where he served six years as President of Emerson Process Management Asia Pacific.
