PTI is proud to present Michael Geiger, Director of Sales and Marketing at Hans Kuenz GmbH, as a speaker at the upcoming Terminal Automation & Training Conference taking place in London on April 19-20, 2017.
Geiger brings 20 years’ worth of experience in materials handling and associated equipment to the event.
Since his graduation in Mechanical Engineering and Business Economics at the Technical University Graz in Austria, Geiger has been employed in the transportation and crane construction fields, with material handling always being his passion.
