"I am honored to lead the US industrial motor business," said Henson. "Taking care of customers is in our employees' DNA, and we work hard every day to earn our customers' business and their preference for our motors. I am committed to maintaining that focus and investing for the future." Henson started his career with the company (Baldor Electric Company at that time) in 1997 as part of the drives and motion control team. His customer-first approach has been critical to his success in roles in product management, marketing, and sales. His broad experience across both motors and drives provides a strong level of understanding of customer and application needs as well as buying preferences in the US market.
