In promoting five of its leading executives to vice president positions, Tennant Company has strengthened its management team in order to align with the company’s growth strategy. One of those executives promoted is Mauro Compagnoni who is now vice president of APAC.
The other new vice presidents are John Lund, North America sales; Yves Derycke, EMEA; Mark Morrison, global supply chain; and Mike Reilly, global manufacturing.
“Each of these individuals has greatly contributed to Tennant’s success and our strong financial position today,” said Tennant president and CEO, Chris Killingstad.
“As the company continues to expand into new markets and channels, I am confident we are keeping pace with the appropriate leadership structure to strategise, lead and manage the winning balance of growing and running our global business,” added Killingstad.
Responsibilities for each new vice president are broad and critical to helping Tennant Company achieve its objectives and drive towards long-term success, stated the company.
Based in Sydney, Compagnoni leads the Asia-Pacific business unit whose key markets include Australia, China and Japan.
He joined the company in 1987 when the APAC region was known as Australia-Export-Japan (AEJ). ‘Compagnoni has been instrumental in growing Tennant Company presence in this diverse region, in particular overseeing the company’s successful expansion in China,’ Tennant noted.
