Servomex, the world leader in gas analysis, has appointed Luca Marinelli as General Manager for Servomex Americas, based in Houston, Texas.
Chuck Hurley, President at Servomex, said, “Luca brings more than twenty years of technical sales and worldwide management experience to the position, most recently as Servomex General Manager for Europe, Middle East, Africa and India (EMEA&I). His extensive national and international experience and proven track record managing teams, negotiating contracts, collaborating on the design and launch of new products, whilst working with customers, OEMs and Channel Partners already includes the US, Canada and Latin America. This vast knowledge of both the industry and the GM role means he is well placed to take Servomex’s Americas business forward.”
Originally from Milan, Marinelli spent 20 years in the United States where he graduated before working with US corporations, including thirteen years with Honeywell Analytics where he emerged as Director of World Wide Sales (High Tech) and latterly as Vice President of Sales. As well as being fluent in Italian and English, Marinelli has a strong knowledge of Spanish and French.
Marinelli joined Servomex in 2009 as General Manager for EMEA&I based in The Netherlands heading the commercial operation and Mumbai manufacturing site. His remit included the successful reorganisation of the Sales, Service and Customer Service teams, introduction of regions and realignment of the European Business Center to support them.
Marinelli said, “The Americas continues to be a very important region for us and one we have invested in with our integrated site in Houston. I look forward to working with the established customers and Channel Partners to ensure they have the best possible experience of Servomex, from consultation to sales, delivery, implementation and service. It is good to be back in the United States.”
He succeeds Martin Cox, who returns to Servomex in the UK with global responsibility for business development as Market Sector Manager, Sensing Technologies.
