HydroHoist Marine Group named Eric Farley director of operations for its HyPower division.

Farley will be responsible for the overall sales and operational management of the marine power division. Farley most recently was regional director of the HydroHoist Boat Lift division, with sales, service and warehouse responsibilities for Oklahoma, Texas and Kansas.

“We have reviewed our operations and felt that we needed an organization that meets the technology advantages of the products we offer through HyPower; thus we are refocusing our energies within this division as a company,” HydroHoist Marine Group president Mick Weber said in a statement. “It is not often that you have someone within your company that has Eric’s background and skills to lead our team through the process of making HyPower the leader in marine power that HydroHoist is in the boat lift industry.”

HydroHoist is a leader in the hydro-pneumatic boat lift industry.
