President & CEO, Rhinestahl Corporation
Dieter leads the Rhinestahl AMG, CTS and ITS business units in achieving their goals of being world leaders in providing advanced manufacturing, gas turbine engine tooling, and innovative technical solutions for our customers with a strong customer-oriented service and support approach.
Dieter has over 26 years of experience in high-tech companies which included several successful roles with NCR in its Personal Computer Division and then at NCR's Human Interface Technology Center at Georgia Tech in Atlanta.
In 1990, Dieter decided to return to Cincinnati and join his father as the General Manager for Rhinestahl developing new business opportunities which included broadening a concentration in turbine engine tooling and developing new products, capabilities and programs with related end-user customers.
In 2006, with his father's retirement, Dieter became President and CEO and quickly led Rhinestahl to be the largest supplier of GE turbine engine tooling in the world. In 2009, with Rhinestahl's successful relationship with GE and their end-customers, Dieter led the successful effort to acquire GE's Customer Tooling Solutions (CTS) business. Since the acquisition, Dieter has grown the CTS business with enhanced tooling sales and support for GE's engine programs and concurrently has diversified the business with the development and growth of the AMG and ITS business units.
Dieter attended Case Western Reserve University, earning a BS degree in Physics and a BS in Computer Engineering as well as an MBA with a concentration in Finance from the University of Cincinnati.
