Wincor Nixdorf names new CEO, takes over #2 spot in ATMs

In financial news Wincor Nixdorf names new CEO for U.S. division. In related news RBR research over in UK raised Wincor into the #2 spot for worldwide ATM deployments.If we had to guess -- in the U.S. it is still a battle between NCR (36%) and Diebold (35%) with Wincor around 20. The lack of service network in the U.S. is likely Wincor's biggest disadvantage (and which they are probably focusing on improving...). In the U.S. it is safe to say Wincor is here to stay.
