Soren Scheid joins Ecochlor as development manager for Europe, Scandinavia, UK

(NORTH HAVEN, Conn.) — Ecochlor has announced that Soren Scheid will be managing the new office in Germany as the regional business development manager for Europe, Scandinavia and the United Kingdom.

Scheid looks forward to promoting Ecochlor’s innovative ballast water management system (BWMS) to this region. “I like to think that my work with Ecochlor will not only make shipping more efficient,” Scheid explained, “but also help to protect the environment.” Ecochlor has a record of 98 percent operable systems at sea.

With more than 10 years working in the maritime industry, Scheid understands a shipowner’s individual needs in regard to environmental marine water and air regulations. He will utilize his range of experience in sales, process engineering and operational environmental protection to assist owners in finding the best solution for their fleet of ships.

“The ability to listen and interact with customers within different hierarchy levels, as well as diverse technical and cultural points, is the basis for what inspires me within my work in sales,” said Scheid.

“Soren brings an exceptional set of qualifications and increased momentum to Ecochlor as we continue to grow our sales and support resources for the shipping industry,” said Andrew Marshall, vice president of business development. “His experience in after-sales support as well as his proficiency as a technical environmental engineer will assist our global sales team working in tandem with our customers to reach a common goal – BWMS regulatory compliance for each and every ship that performs ballast operations with an Ecochlor system.”
