By |  October 13, 2022


Bunting named Robert Bunting president and CEO.

Robert follows in the footsteps of his grandfather and father who both served in the roles. Robert’s father, Bob Bunting, will assume the position of chairman following his son’s promotion.

Founded in 1959 by Walter Bunting in Chicago, the company has remained family-owned and operated ever since. Bob served as president of the company since 1993, overseeing an international expansion.

Headquartered in Kansas, Bunting has multiple locations, including Bunting-Elk Grove Village in Illinois; Bunting-DuBois in Pennsylvania; Bunting-Berkhamsted and Bunting-Redditch in the United Kingdom; and a location in China.

Robert joined Bunting’s Elk Grove Village magnet sales team in 2007. In 2009, he moved into external sales to cover Illinois and Wisconsin, focusing on material handling, metal detection and magnetic separation.

Robert was then appointed as global project manager for metal detection in 2014, where his responsibilities included product development and sales growth. He was appointed general manager of Bunting-Elk Grove Village in 2016. As general manager, Robert oversaw magnet inventory management, the identification and introduction of new magnetic products and the development of digital marketing strategies for online sales.

“Bunting’s position as a successful, well-respected global business is due to the tireless work of my grandfather and father,” Robert says. “Despite being located on different continents, the Bunting Group is one company and all our incredible employees are fundamental to our success. We have developed strategic global partnerships with suppliers and customers, which I aim to support and expand. I am both excited and honored to be entrusted with taking the company forward as president and CEO.”
