In 2015, Miltenberger joined Sunnen as president and COO with extensive experience in operations, engineering, and business development. According to Sunnen, he has been instrumental in Sunnen’s transformation of its global operations and in the company’s improvement in customer contact management and relationship development.
“Chris has demonstrated over his six years with Sunnen that he is very capable of leading this organization,” said Matthew Sunnen Kreider, Sunnen’s chairman since 2004. “During the last 18 months of Covid challenges, Chris has become the face of Sunnen to our customers, business partners, and employees, leading us through these turbulent times.”
“I am truly honored by the faith and trust put in me by the Sunnen family and our board,” Miltenberger said. “I am committed to building on Sunnen’s leadership in bore creation and finishing, as well as expanding Sunnen’s footprint as a world-class manufacturing partner with our customers. I am fortunate to be leading an already strong team both in St. Louis and around the globe.”
Prior to joining Sunnen, Miltenberger held positions with PlayPower Inc., NN Inc., Aftermarket Technology Corp. and Delphi. He holds bachelor of science degrees from Ball State University in operations management and from Purdue University in mechanical engineering technology. He also has an MBA from Michigan State University.
