Palladium Technologies of Fort Lauderdale has appointed Bill McLaren senior sales consultant, responsible for generating leads, customer service and order processing for all domestic accounts.

McLaren, a native of Ontario, has more than 40 years of experience in the marine industry. He began his career in the family business, owning and operating several marinas in the Kawartha Lakes region. He established his own marine consulting firm in 1996, providing finance and insurance services to large marine sales centers. In 2000, McLaren joined marine display manufacturer Nauticomp Inc. as a partner responsible for North American sales and marketing, and in 2006 became director of international sales when Nauticomp Europe Ltd. was formed.

“Bill is a seasoned professional who brings outstanding knowledge and understanding of our products and services, customers and industry,” said Michael Blake, president and CEO of Palladium Technologies, in a statement. “He is well-connected with a strong reputation for service. We anticipate a bright future for him with our company as we continue our international expansion.”

Palladium Technologies develops control and monitoring systems for the megayacht industry, along with providing a range of electrical engineering services.
