Dometic Marine, a division of Dometic Group, a global provider of leisure products for the marine, recreational vehicle, commercial and passenger vehicle markets, announced that it has appointed Joe Pinto as National Account Manager - Reverse Osmosis Systems. In his new role, Pinto will lead Dometic’s Aftermarket and OEM sales teams as they expand the company’s presence in the fresh water and sea water reverse osmosis systems marketplace.
In January 2014, Dometic Marine formally announced an exclusive worldwide agreement with Spot Zero Reverse Osmosis Inc. of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., to market and sell its Spot Zero Fresh Water Reverse Osmosis systems and its Sea Xchange Sea Water Reverse Osmosis systems.
Prior to joining Dometic, Pinto was consulting for Spot Zero, providing sales direction to the organization. Prior to that, he spent over ten years in senior sales management positions in two major marine reverse osmosis companies: FCI Watermakers and Sea Recovery Corporation /HRO Systems.
“We anticipate significant growth in demand for reverse osmosis systems as yacht owners and sport fishing boat owners recognize the benefits and convenience of having unlimited access to fresh, pure water. Joe Pinto is one of the U.S.’s leading experts on reverse osmosis systems, and he is uniquely positioned to lead Dometic Marine’s sales effort in the watermaker marketplace,” said Ken Taranto, Dometic Marine Vice President for Aftermarket System Sales.
Pinto has a B.S. degree in Business Management from Pepperdine University in Malibu, Calif., and a Juris Doctorate degree from Western State University in Fullerton, Calif. In his new role, Mr. Pinto will be based in Southern California.
