Midnight Express Powerboats said Cristian Condurache joined the powerboat builder as operations manager, supervising the day-to-day operation of its production and service facilities.

Florida-based Midnight Express said that in an increasingly global boating marketplace, Condurache’s international experience — and proficiency in six languages — will help enhance the company’s customer service experience.

The company said Condurache is a mechanical engineer with an advanced education in manufacturing, business administration, project management and design-based computer software.

“The role of operations manager is perhaps the most pivotal position in our company, blending planning, implementing and managing in an exacting way all the facets of our demanding drive toward continuing innovation designed to improve our customer’s experience,” Midnight Express vice president Harris Glaser said in a statement. “Cristian’s rare blend of engineering acumen and compelling personality makes him ideal.”
