Nautronix Appoint New Vice President Sales - Americas
06 May 2011
Nautronix are pleased to announce the appointment of Richard Harris as the new Vice President of Sales for the Americas region.
Richard joins the company with a strong background in the subsea service sector having held positions at Ashtead Technology, Sonsub, Technip and most recently as a Sales Manager for Acergy/Subsea 7 in the Gulf of Mexico.
Richard will be based at the company's Houston office, and will be responsible for maintaining and developing Nautronix' client base in both the US and Brazilian markets.
Richard's appointment comes at an exciting time for the firm, with the company's recent expansion into the Brazilian market through Nautronix Brasil Ltda. The company is also benefitting from the heightened industry awareness of acoustic technologies after last year's unfortunate incident at Macondo.
Richard Harris said: ‘'I am delighted to be joining the Management Team at Nautronix as we look to grow our business in the Americas Region. We have tremendous brand awareness and lead the market in Digital Acoustics through our ADS2 Technology. At this time we are well placed to take the business into an exciting period of growth and I look forward to being part of the continuing success story of Nautronix.
CEO Mark Patterson comments: ‘I am delighted to welcome Richard onboard the team; he has a great wealth of experience in Sales, Marketing and Business Development and will be a great asset to the company. This year is set to be a very successful one for Nautronix with a lot of interest being shown in our products especially in the Brazil and Gulf of Mexico regions and I feel that it is very important to have a strong sales force in place both in the UK and the US to deal with this increasingly high volume of interest.
