Encouraged by a steadily growing global demand for complete integrated underwater technology solutions, MacArtney is launching significant efforts to strengthen its system sales capacity.

Supporting ocean science systems

At the MacArtney Group it is recognized that providing system solutions is one of the core drivers in adding value to the market for ocean science. To support this important business area, MacArtney has welcomed Dr. Ole Aarup Mikkelsen, as a new System Sales Manager, to its specialist ocean science team at the Group headquarters in Denmark.

Ole holds a Ph.D. in physical geography (2001) from the University of Copenhagen, written on the topic of suspended sediment dynamics in coastal waters. He has spent three years as a post doc at the Department of Oceanography, Dalhousie University and Bedford Institute of Oceanography in Halifax, Canada. Here, his work has focused on the development and deployment of an instrumented tripod - INSSECT - for sediment transport studies in the Adriatic Sea and the Nova Scotia Shelf. After finishing his post doc, Ole took a position as research officer at Bangor University, Wales, U.K., where he continued his work on sediment dynamics. During his scientific career, Ole has spent more than half a year at sea onboard research vessels, published almost two dozen peer-reviewed scientific papers in scientific journals and presented his research at numerous conferences around the world.

In 2007, Ole was recruited to a position as Sales and Marketing Manager and, as per 2011, as Vice President of Sales and Marketing, with the Seattle-based LISST manufacturer Sequoia Scientific. Beyond heading key sales and marketing efforts, Ole was also the main responsible for customer and distributor training, as well as developing the Sequoia international distributor network, which grew from approximately 25 to more than 70 countries during his six-year tenure.

MacArtney Inc. Northeast Operations responds to post expansion rise in system demand

In North America, the MacArtney Inc. Operations in the Northeast, is also experiencing the positive effect of underwater technology system demand, in the wake of the company's recent coast-to-coast expansion.

"By being locally present at the central hubs of offshore North America, more potential clients have undoubtedly become familiar with MacArtney products and not least our capacity to deliver and support complete systems and solutions," said Jennifer Stewart, General Manager of MacArtney Inc. - Northeast Operations, and continued, "zhere in the Northeast, however, the increase in system demand is also driven by our long-standing relationship with our customer base, which is extensively made up of loyal SubConn connector users, who have gained a natural interest in all the other products and systems offered by MacArtney - hereunder especially our winch and handling solutions."

Responding to the increase in system demand, MacArtney Inc. Northeast Operations have hired Nick Hartman, an experienced engineer, project manager and business development professional, to function as the dedicated System Sales Manager. 

Nick has launched and supported several products, projects and systems with returns for companies and customers alike. Nick brings specialist skills and experience in developing, selling and supporting underwater technology systems and products to match complex customer needs. This experience has been acquired through several years at the service of Remote Ocean Systems, where Nick has held positions such as Engineering Manager and Operations Manager, working cross functionally with sales and engineering to develop proposals for customer systems and custom specified products.

In relation to the system sales related reinforcement of the MacArtney Inc. Northeast organization, experienced technical sales professional, Jeff Stewart, will take up the role as dedicated Item Sales Manager within the Northeast region.
