Hyde Marine names Global Sales Director
Hyde Marine, Inc., has appointment of Pekka Tyllilä as Global Sales Director. He will be responsible for worldwide sales and sales support of Hyde's marine ballast water management business including the Hyde Guardian ballast water treatment system.
Pekka Tyllilä earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering at The Helsinki Institute of Technology. He was most recently Sales Manager for Evac Vacuum Toilet Systems at Evac Oy and has worked in several international sales positions with Evac and other major Finnish companies.
He will be based at Hyde's new sales office in Finland at the head office of its parent company, Lamor Group, at Technopolis, Teknobulevardi 3-5, FI-01530 Vantaa, Finland.
Hyde Chairman, Tom Mackey, said Mr. Tyllilä "has extensive experience in sales, sales networking and product development, which will provide Hyde with effective leadership and team building skills as we continue to develop our world wide sales organization. Pekka will also help Hyde to ensure the highest levels of satisfaction and service for our customers."
Lamor Group, an international specialist in oil spill response and environmental technologies with headquarters in Vantaa, acquired Cleveland-based Hyde Marine in April.
Lamor Group CEO Rasmus Guldbrand said the acquisition significantly increased the group's focus and ability to grow in the global environmental technology market and gave it an excellent opportunity to expand its environmental technology range.
