Bob Hallengren, new product introduction program manager, will put a decade of CAT marine engineer experience to use, guiding strategic development, the smooth introduction of new engine designs. Mak Mirhakimi, who has led the Caterpillar marine engine electronics development effort since its inception in 1989, will be electronics program manager, developing and implementing electronic control system strategies. Paul Mathes, marketing and customer services manager, will lead worldwide marketing efforts, as well as a team of engineers focused on product improvement and support issues. K.
