Danfoss Power Solutions has announced the appointment of Andrew Smulski as president of its Fluid Conveyance division responsible for the division’s activities globally, effective immediately. Previously senior vice president of Distribution Sales, Smulski will continue to serve as a key member of the Power Solutions leadership team and will report directly to Eric Alström, president of Danfoss Power Solutions.
Smulski brings more than 20 years of commercial and sales leadership experience in the fluid power and electrical industries. He joined Danfoss as part of the Eaton Hydraulics acquisition in 2021. At Eaton, he held various leadership positions within sales, program management and marketing. In his most recent role at Danfoss Power Solutions, Smulski merged and developed a sales organization focused on delivering solutions to the company’s distribution partners globally.
“Andrew’s demonstrated passion for leading global teams, partnering with customers to solve their most challenging machine problems and collaboratively growing with our distribution partners will be a great asset to Fluid Conveyance. He has the competencies to take this division to the next level, and I look forward to seeing how his contributions position the team and our customers for continued success,” Alström said.
In commenting on the appointment, Smulski noted that he has partnered with the Fluid Conveyance team for years “because our hoses, fittings and couplings are an essential component of our distributors’ business.” He added, “I’m excited to now lead the FC team and grow that business, and I’m grateful I’ll still have the opportunity to work with our wonderful distribution partners.”
