May 23, 2018 - John Deere Power Systems (JDPS) has announced a change to its senior management team in response to the planned retirement of John Piasecki, Director of Worldwide Marketing, Sales & Customer Support. Piasecki will be succeeded by David Hoffman, who has been in the position of Director of Customer & Product Support for John Deere Tractors.

After more than 20 years of service at John Deere, Piasecki has announced his retirement. Starting with John Deere’s Construction and Forestry Division, and then transitioning to JDPS, he held positions in marketing, sales, and customer support. While at JDPS, Piasecki led the organization’s OEM engine and drivetrain business among other duties. Prior to working for Deere, Piasecki spent 22 years in the engine-manufacturing industry in commercial and engineering management positions.

“John was a key leader throughout our global engine-emissions journey, nurturing strong connections with company partners, engine distributors, dealers and customers around the world. We are thankful for his contributions to John Deere Power Systems.” said Jean Gilles, Senior Vice President, John Deere Power Systems, Worldwide Parts Services, Advanced Technology & Engineering, and Global Supply Management & Logistics.

Hoffman has held various positions in product engineering, factory marketing, branch operations, sales and customer & product support in the U.S. and Europe.

“David’s background and prior roles, including managing worldwide engine and drivetrain sales, have prepared him well for his new position serving John Deere engine users worldwide,” Gilles said. “We’re confident that David’s extensive global experience will make for a seamless transition.”
