KraussMaffei Corp., the U.S. subsidiary of Germany-based KraussMaffei Group GmbH, has named industry veteran Charlie Rogers as its new president.

Rogers replaces Paul Caprio, who left the Florence, Kentucky-based company at the beginning of June.

After studying Mechanical Engineering at Georgia University of Technology and a MBA from Chicago University, Rogers first worked for various industrial companies. Most recently, he was general manager at John Bean Technologies Corp., an American food machinery and airport equipment company.
