Marine power generation and climate control manufacturer Northern Lights has named industry veteran Mike Prado to the newly created position of global director of business development.

Prado joins Seattle-based Northern Lights after 20 years with Atlas Marine Systems, the last 12 as director for marine products, a position in which he was instrumental in establishing a worldwide network of technical support, sales and service partners.

“Northern Lights is delighted to welcome Mike Prado to our global team,” Northern Lights vice president of sales and marketing Colin Puckett said in a statement. "We have collaborated with Mike on projects many times over the years. The chance to bring someone on board with his experience, technical acumen and background was an opportunity we just couldn't let pass us by.”

A graduate of Long Beach State University in California, Prado specializes in electrical engineering, design and application solutions. In his new role he will work closely with existing and prospective Northern Lights and Technicold clients to develop customized solutions for their projects.
