Claas Names New SVP of Americas

Eric Raby has succeeded Leif Magnusson as senior vice president of the Americas region at Claas.

Raby joined Claas of America in 2015 and has been the president and general manager of sales. He now has assumed leadership of Claas sales companies in Brazil and Argentina as well as importer markets throughout Latin America.

Magnusson joined Claas in 2008. He will continue with the Claas Group in an advisory capacity.

“Succession planning has been a priority of mine for quite some time,” Magnusson said. “We have made significant progress in people and structure at our operations in the Americas. I think we have come up with a winning combination of talent to continue the growth for Claas in the region. This is the right time to pass on the leadership to Eric Raby.”
