Hotstart has elevated Casey Hall to Product Strategist/Market Manager. Also, Andrzej Bartnik is taking over as Chief Technology Officer at Frauscher Sensor Technology.

Casey Hall joined Hotstart, a designer and manufacturer of thermal management systems, in 2015. As Railroad Market Manager, he worked with railroads, installers and OEMs to reduce locomotive idling, fuel consumption and emissions across the U.S. and Canada. As part of Hall’s new role developing product strategies for all markets, he will move from the Hotstart Railroad Office in Merrillville, Ind., to company headquarters in Spokane, Wash., where he will work more closely with Hotstart’s sales, engineering and manufacturing teams. He will continue to lead the Railroad division. Mike Mustradi serves as Railroad Market Manager.

“Casey has done a great job in the rail market and now is in position to make a bigger impact,” Hotstart CEO Terry Judge said. “We are excited to have him in Spokane working closer with us. He has a lot of positive energy and loves working with people. Our business, employees and customers will benefit from his initiatives.”

Andrzej Bartnik has served Frauscher Sensor Technology, an axle counting and wheel detection system provider, since 2019 as Managing Director of Frauscher Poland. He will continue in that position and also serve as Chief Technology Officer of the global company. 

Prior to joining Frauscher, Bartnik held several strategic roles at Bombardier, including Product Owner, Chief Specialist, and Onboard and Wayside Equipment Department Line Manager.

“Given his extensive experience in this sector, Andrzej will focus on the development of our portfolio strategy, together with our experts, presenting Frauscher as the leading solutions provider across the rail industry,” Frauscher CEO Michael Thiel said.
