“This new management structure is a reflection of the growth of the company and
the evolution of our positions within that structure,” explains COO Monika Heinz

sales and technical support here in the US. We wish Rik Kirby well in his new
venture, and look ahead to continued growth and development for Renkus-Heinz.”
