Pump manufacturer Xylem has announced two international appointments at its dewatering business, which are effective immediately.
Harry Steyn has been named international rental development manager, dewatering, and will be based at Xylem’s European headquarters in Schaffhausen, Switzerland.
Mr Steyn will be responsible for the growth and development of Xylem’s extensive European rental fleet of dewatering pumps and accessories. He previously worked as dewatering manager for Xylem South Africa, managing dewatering rental and sales in mining and industry markets for over seven years.
Meanwhile, Anna Bukvic has been appointed international marketing communications manager, dewatering, also based at Schaffhausen. With over fifteen years’ experience working with a range of multinational companies, Ms Bukvic will be responsible for driving marketing campaigns to support the rental and sales growth of Xylem’s industry-leading Godwin and Flygt brands in strategic dewatering markets.
Jim Mowbray, general manager for Xylem’s international dewatering business in EMEA/APAC, said, “At Xylem, we complement our portfolio of cutting-edge technologies with a committed and dynamic team who share a passion for solving our customers’ most complex water challenges.
“During his tenure with Xylem South Africa, Mr Steyn made an outstanding contribution to the growth of our dewatering business in the region and he will now bring this expertise to bear at a European level, expanding revenue opportunities for Xylem’s international pump rental offering.”
He added that Ms Bukvic would use her advanced marketing communications capabilities to further enhance and differentiate Xylem’s flagship Godwin and Flygt brands in the region.
Mr Mowbray added his best wishes to Xylem’s two new employees.
