Philippe Halloin has been appointed as Vice President of the Parker Seal Group in Europe.
He will be in role from 1 June 2010, and succeeds Joachim Guhe, who assumed responsibility for Parker’s European Filtration Group in March.
Whilst in post, Halloin will be responsible for coordination, optimisation and strategic alignment and acquisitions of European Seal Group’s three divisions, in addition to its nine European-wide locations.
Halloin commented, “Our alignment for the future is based on several cornerstones. They include geographic expansions and the penetration of strong-growth markets as well as the continuation of our accelerated development of innovative technologies addressing the needs of economy and ecology, which are generated in close partnership with our customers and thus exactly meet the demands of the market.”
In a press statement Parker Hannifin described Halloin’s immediate focus as growth and new geographic markets, such as Eastern Europe.
