Kittiwake Appoints Dedicated Business Development Manager

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

Strong new product pipeline for 2011 to enhance ongoing business growth
 
Kittiwake Developments, a leading global provider of asset protection technology, today announced the appointment of Dr Steve Dye as its first dedicated Business Development Manager. This follows hot on the heels of the appointment of Peter Pilon as CEO of Kittiwake’s US operations.
 
Dye, whose previous roles have included European and Asia sales director for Source Photonics and Northlight Optronics following senior marketing manager and product development roles at Lucent and HP, transitions from Kittiwake’s engineering department, where he was instrumental in developing waterSCAN, an infrared water-in-oil monitoring system. Dye’s remit will also cover development opportunities across the recently acquired Procal business, the company specializing in emissions monitoring technology that has been integrated into the Kittiwake family.
 
Dye will remain heavily involved in R&D in his new role whilst also focusing on unearthing new market channels, ensuring that the benefits of Kittiwake’s innovative technology will be accessible by a broader customer base. Dye’s role will also pertain to developing and implementing more flexible purchase options that enable customers of all sizes to benefit from the cost savings that multi purchasing Kittiwake’s solutions can offer.
 
Martin Lucas, Managing Director, Kittiwake Developments commented:
 
“Steve’s appointment comes at an exciting time for Kittiwake, with a slew of new products in the pipeline for launch this year. His substantial knowledge of our technology on a first-hand basis will be invaluable as we look to enhance our market position. Condition monitoring is essential to delivering predictive maintenance solutions that can minimize downtime and maximise operational efficiencies. It plays a critical role in the future of our markets. It is only right that we ensure that our solutions can reach the full spectrum of customers that will benefit.”
 
Of his appointment, Dye commented:
“The sheer scale of Kittiwake’s offering presents a great opportunity both for me and the company and I ’m looking forward to getting out in the marketplace and translating Kittiwake’s innovative technology into solutions that can make a real difference to the bottom line for customers across the board. Our products deliver such significant cost efficiencies that investing in this technology is cheaper than not acting at all – something that we believe the whole market should be aware of and be able to exploit.”
