Eric Rose joins Global as director of business development

(SEATTLE) — Eric Rose, formerly of Weiler Products and Caterpillar, has joined Global Diving & Salvage Inc. as director of business development. He is responsible for the marine service company’s long-term revenue generation, and the support of Global’s regions and service lines, including marine construction, commercial diving, environmental services and marine casualty response.
Rose is a proven strategic leader with extensive experience in market development, customer relations, project management, and operations. In his role as director of business development, Rose will oversee sales and business development, marketing, client engagement and corporate strategy for revenue generation.
Prior to joining Global, Rose spent many years with NC Machinery for Caterpillar, most recently as Washington equipment sales and rental manager. During his tenure, he was responsible for the overall P&L of the sales and rental departments in Washington state, managing inventory levels between $30 million to $50 million per year. He created and implemented dealer efficiency tools and programs that are still in use at the company today.
Rose left Caterpillar to travel the world for nearly a year and half – visiting 25 countries. “I saw this as a fantastic opportunity, not just to see the world with my wife, but also to further develop my cross-cultural understanding, communication and negotiation skills, and decision-making skills,” said Rose.

Before joining the Global team, Rose most recently served as the Northwest territory sales manager for Weiler Products, where he was responsible for sales, product development and dealer development for the Weiler product line.
