Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems announced that Fred Andersky has been named director of government affairs. Andersky, who had served as the director of marketing for the Controls group at Bendix, now will be responsible for managing the company’s government efforts with federal, state and local legislators, as well as industry regulators.
“In his previous role as director of marketing for the Controls group, Fred conducted technology reviews and demonstrations for key legislators and regulators, and he already had well-established relationships with them,” says Andreea Raaber, vice president of business development for Bendix. “Fred’s appointment to the position of director of government affairs was a logical progression, and we believe that he will play a critical role in furthering our legislative efforts.”
Andersky joined Bendix in 2005 as the marketing manager of electronics. In March 2008, he was promoted to director of marketing for the Controls group and was responsible for helping grow the company’s safety technologies portfolio.
