Bio-UV Group recruits boss for Asia office
Steven Matthew has been selected to head up the new Hong Kong sales office of the Bio-UV Group, a French manufacturer of ballast water management systems. He will report to Benoît Gillmann, president and CEO of the group.
As a former seagoing marine engineer, a maritime lawyer with Holman Fenwick Willan, and more recently, sales director in the ballast water treatment field, Matthew has a wealth of experience in the industry.
Commenting on the Asia market in particular, he said: “We anticipate a huge start to the ballast water treatment retrofit market beginning in 2019 and spiking in the 2021 to 2022 period.”
Matthew's focus initially will be on increasing sales in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Vietnam. The Bio-UV Group Asia, established on 4 August 2018, will target the Asia-Pacific market as a whole. (cd)
