US pump supplier Global Pump has appointed a business development manager for Europe and the CIS region.

Victor Krotikov joins Global Pump to develop sales of its diesel and submersible pumps in Europe, Russia and CIS states. Mr Krotikov speaks Russian, English and Latvian and has “vast experience in business development and sales in Eastern European and former USSR countries”, said the company.

Global Pump, based in Davison, Michigan, is a subsidiary of Mersino Group. Mersino was founded in 1988 by Rod Mersino to offer pump rental and contracting services.

The group created Global Pumps in 1998 to develop its own range of diesel driven and submersible pumps, which includes diesel engine driven, electric submersible and hydraulic submersible pumps. Mr Krotikov will be responsible for promoting the entire range throughout the EU/CIS.

Bud Nichols, Global’s vice president, said; “I was pleased to find someone with Victor’s business experience who can actively promote our products. His knowledge of import and export will greatly assist us as we look to increase our global footprint.”

Gino Mersino, president of Global Pump and son of founder Rod, said; “Our success is intrinsically bound to local representation. Victor…has embraced our product offering and has had an immediate and positive impact on critical intangibles including product presentation and positioning, and various import and export regulations.”
