Mobile Industrial Robots (MiR) appointed Jean-Pierre Hathout president. Hathout replaces Walter Vahey, who will remain with the company as an advisor until his retirement in 2024. Previously, Hathout served as president of SIT Controls USA and built a 17-year career at Bosch. Hathout brings technological expertise and global leadership skills, including management of operations in the United States, Germany, the Netherlands, Turkey and China. “This unique balance of leadership and engineering strengths will equip Jean-Pierre to be a great leader for MiR as the company continues to grow to become the global leader in autonomous mobile robots,” Vahey said.
