A native of Richmond, Sadler earned a bachelor of science degree in organizational management from St. Paul’s College in Lawrenceville, Virginia.

“We are pleased to have gained Randy Sadler for this challenging task. He is an experienced executive who knows the company very well,” said Timo Berger, chief sales officer at Weidmuller. “Randy held various positions at Weidmuller from 1985 to 2000. As the person responsible for the U.S. business, he and his team will work to achieve the company’s goals. His many years of management experience and his broad industry expertise offer the best prerequisites for this.”

Sadler is thrilled to rejoin Weidmuller USA and lead the company forward at this pivotal time. “I have tremendous respect for the company’s legacy of innovating and delivering end-to-end solutions in smart industrial connectivity and automation, and I am confident that Weidmuller USA is well-positioned to shape the Industry 4.0 revolution with our future-ready products,” he said. “I look forward to collaborating with the very talented local and global teams to accelerate the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) innovation and create more value for our U.S. customers.”
