Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence Appoints Global Marketing Director
Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence has appointed Maja Foster as global marketing director of its production software business.
Joining the company after seven years at machine tool manufacturer Mazak, including the last three as European marketing manager, Foster brings a wealth of metalworking industry experience to her new role, in which she will be setting marketing strategies for all product lines under the production software umbrella.
In addition to the marketing responsibilities, Foster will also lead product management, a specialist team whose tasks include gathering market intelligence, performing market analysis and defining future product content and direction. After completing three degrees, M.Eng in structural engineering, B.Eng (Hons) in civil engineering, and BSc (Hons) in international business and marketing, Foster has worked for British, German and Japanese B2B organizations, and has held senior marketing positions for 13 years, including being the highest ranking female in the world for a leading global manufacturer. During that time, she gained experience in setting and delivering international marketing strategies, managing international teams, managing multi-million-dollar projects and budgets, and optimizing marketing processes.
Away from the office, Foster is a self-confessed petrol head with a passion for Formula 1 and driving fast, modern cars.
