Power generation and climate control products manufacturer Northern Lights appointed 35-year industry veteran Kevin Kyle as area manager for the Great Lakes and inland waterways region.

Kyle will serve boatbuilders, architects, captains and end users of Northern Lights and Technicold products in the region. The market area includes commercial, military and government vessels and private yachts and trawlers in the United States and Canada.

“An area as diverse as the inland waterways and Great Lakes deserves a dedicated sales and service representative,” Northern Lights global sales manager Kit Purdy said in a statement.

“Kevin’s experience and enthusiasm makes him the ideal fit for the promotion of Northern Lights and Technicold products in the region, helping the entire marketplace achieve its potential with state-of-the-art marine products,” he added.

Kyle previously was a technical sales representative for AkzoNobel, manufacturer of Interlux and Awlgrip products; director of purchasing and sales manager at Vita-Plate Battery Inc.; and a store manager at West Marine. He is also a Navy veteran.
