To reflect Ecochlor’s growing business following the EcoOne™ IMO and USCG Type Approval, we are pleased to announce the promotion of David Swindells to Director of Sales and Marketing effective immediately.
In his new position, David will directly oversee and assist the Regional Business Development Managers (RBDMs) in high-level meetings to close sales and initiate approaches for on-going customer relationships. He will assist in setting short- and long-term goals for the sale of Ecochlor’s BWMSs by developing strategies, activities and benchmark goals for the Team’s sales cycles. Hired in 2021, David has been instrumental in driving new business to Ecochlor within North America, focusing on a new market segment ─ ATB and offshore support vessels. He has worked diligently to bring a new CRM platform to the RBDMs and has created sales directives and goals within his responsibility as the Brand Manager for Bio-Sea UV.
“From the first day with us, David has jumped into his role at Ecochlor at full capacity. He immediately displayed an ability to lead as well as develop sales and profitability strategies to further assist our RBDMs,” said Andrew Marshall, CEO. “He gives 100% to assisting our client-base and prospective customers while guiding them through researching BWMSs in order to attain the best possible outcome for their ships. I support David wholeheartedly in this new position and look forward to seeing the positive impact he will have on our Team.”
“The Ecochlor Sales Team is without a doubt one of the most hard-working group of professionals that I have had the pleasure to work with in a long time,” commented David Swindells. “Even though we are located in different corners of the world, we meet weekly for planning strategies and to seek ways that we may better support each other and our customers. This year will have its challenges with the looming regulatory deadlines, but I have full confidence that each and every one of our team is up to the task!”
Mr. Swindells has more than 31 years of experience in the maritime industry. Prior to Ecochlor he secured contracts for millions of dollars to deliver supplies and services to Naval and Commercial new ship construction and in 2001 expanded business development from the United Kingdom into the North American marine arena. He received a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Central Lancashire and is a member of the Planning Committee for the Ballastwater Equipment Manufacturer Association (BEMA), IMarEST and SNAME.
