As Pulse Structural Monitoring (Pulse), an Acteon company, continues to expand, its Houston office has announced the appointment of two new business development managers to drive the growth of its U.S. operations.
The company appointed Paul Chittenden as the business development manager for production riser and pipeline systems. Chittenden joins Pulse from General Electric (GE) Oil and Gas, where he was the tender manager for drilling and production top-tensioned riser systems and a project manager for subsea and surface wellhead systems. He has a Bachelor of Science in business management from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.
Chittenden’s responsibilities include growing and developing Pulse’s production riser and subsea infrastructure business in the U.S. by supporting its existing clients and seeking new ones. He will work closely with the marketing and technical teams to develop new products and services to meet market and customer requirements in the region.

He joins the company after five years with ExxonMobil as the project controls lead for the PNG LNG project in Papua New Guinea. Bramande has a Bachelor of Science in civil engineering from Louisiana Tech University.
Bramande is responsible for marketing and sales of the company’s subsea marine systems and developing relationships with Pulse’s partners in the supply chain, including: operators; engineering; procurement and construction contractors; and equipment suppliers
