Henry Craukamp, new Managing Director of Rockwell Automation, for Sub Saharan Africa.

Henry Craukamp has been appointed as Managing Director of Rockwell Automation for Sub-Saharan Africa, effective 1 January 2019. Henry will now be responsible for leading the business in Sub-Saharan Africa and for implementing the Rockwell Automation global and pan-EMEA sales strategies and initiatives, especially bringing The Connected Enterprise to Rockwell Automation customers across the region. 

 Henry succeeds Barry Elliot who successfully led and progressed the Rockwell Automation business during the past 6 years. We thank Barry for his strong business contributions and wish him continued success in his new role as Vice President Enterprise Accounts – Heavy Industries. He will be relocating to the USA in early 2019.

Henry has been employed at Rockwell Automation since January 2008. He has held various positions from application engineering to business development for the Power Control Business.

 Henry’s background is in Electrical and Automation. He attained a National Diploma in Electrical Engineering from Technikon Witwatersrand, completed a MDP at the University of Witwatersrand and an MBA from Henley Business School (Reading University UK). His breadth of experience in the Sub-Saharan African market and proven success in prior roles will help Rockwell Automation to continue to expand their reach and grow market share.

We wish him continued success in his new role.
