Last week global water and fueling systems provider, Franklin Electric, named Julie Scheck Freigang as Chief Information Officer. Freigang, known for her more than 20 years of business and IT industry leadership experience, will be responsible for all aspects of the company’s IT infrastructure, projects and processes.

She will report directly to Gregg Sengstack, Franklin Electric’s President and CEO.

Business & IT Industry Leadership

Prior to joining Franklin Electric, Freigang served as Vice President of Information Technologies at Eaton, an energy solutions company she had been with since 1992 when she joined as a product engineer.
From 2007-2010 Freigang held a series of positions in the quality and operational excellence functions before returning to IT as Vice President, IT Operational Excellence and Site Infrastructure Support. In 1996, Freigang founded a small software company which was acquired in 2002.

Freigang earned a Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering from Valparaiso University in Indiana.

DiscoverOrg’s sources indicate that in order to ensure systems meet future business requirements Franklin Electric is looking to increase spending towards the following systems:

  • Server
  • Storage
  • Virtual Infrastructure

Likely Freigang will actively initiate these projects as soon as her tenure starts, meaning she’ll be looking for your organization’s help.

Research shows that the first seller in the door wins the business over 60% of the time. Don’t wait; use this actionable intelligence so you can be the first seller!

Now is the time to reach out and make a case for your product or service.
