“International business is always about finding the right people,” says Michel Locquegnies. “It doesn’t even matter what you do or what the products are.”
Locquegnies knows of what he speaks. As director of international sales and business development at Roseville-based Horton, a manufacturer of engine cooling solutions and suspension products, he (along with the CEO Geert Henk Touw) was presented with the President’s “E” Award for Exports by the U.S. Secretary of Commerce last year. In Minnesota, the company also received the Governor’s International Trade Award.
