Bruce Hertzke, the chairman, president and CEO of Winnebago Industries Inc., recently was named an outside director of MTS Systems Corp., an Eden Prairie, Minn.-based technology firm.

MTS helps its customers accelerate and improve their design, development and manufacturing processes. Its products include modeling and testing software, computer-based testing and simulation systems, control instrumentation products for automating manufacturing processes and consulting services for determining the mechanical behavior of materials, products and structures.

Hertzke was selected because he brings extensive vehicle design development and marketing experience to the MTS board, according to Sidney W. Emery Jr., the MTS chairman and CEO.
