Seco Tools AB has recognized Curt Hassan as the 2016 Global Manager of the Year. The award is given annually to a manager within the organization who demonstrates initiative and serves as a role model in the development of members of his or her team.
Hassan serves as Automotive Zone and Mexico Manager for Seco North America. He has been influential in finding new ways to meet the increasing demands of automotive customers in North America, including the development of Seco’s automotive team which enabled the company to become more involved in Advanced Engineering Programs. Hassan is also a leader in the use of Seco’s Documented Cost Reduction method for systematic identification and documentation of customer improvements and saving potentials.
“Curt is most deserving of this award,” said Rob Keenan, president of Seco Tools. “He consistently exhibits Seco values and his way of working is widely recognized as a best practice within our organization. Curt is extremely committed to and passionate about our customers and always pushes his team to become better.”
Hassan received the Manager of the Year award during Seco’s Management Conference in Malmö, Sweden. He was previously honored three times with Seco’s President’s Club – once as a sales person and twice as a regional sales manager.
