Dearman, the clean cold technology company, has recruited a new vice president for European Sales.
Jan de Waard will be based in Brussels and will oversee Dearman’s sales operations and customer relationships across Europe, where the company expects to grow significantly. He has 33 years of Europe-wide sales experience and joins from the Czech software firm Comprimato.
His previous company, Prague-based computer science firm Cognitive Security, was acquired by Cisco. Before that, Jan worked for mobile software companies Ripcode Inc and 24access Solutions.
Having developed a zero-emission transport refrigeration unit, which is set to begin commercial deployment in Europe in the months ahead, he will lead Dearman’s customer engagement in target markets including France, Germany and the Benelux countries.
The appointment comes at a time of significant growth for Dearman, following the company’s major site expansion earlier this year and significant progress in the development of its cutting edge clean cold and power technologies.
