Dometic Marine names national account manager

Dometic Marine said it named Joe Pinto national account manager for reverse osmosis systems.

Pinto will lead Dometic’s aftermarket and OEM sales teams as they expand the company’s presence in the freshwater and seawater reverse osmosis systems marketplace.

In January, Dometic formally announced an exclusive worldwide agreement with Spot Zero Reverse Osmosis of Fort Lauderdale to market and sell its Spot Zero Fresh Water Reverse Osmosis systems and its Sea Xchange Sea Water Reverse Osmosis systems.

Before he joined Dometic, Pinto was consulting for Spot Zero, providing sales direction. Prior to that, he spent more than 10 years in senior sales management positions in two major marine reverse osmosis companies: FCI Watermakers and Sea Recovery Corp./HRO Systems.

“We anticipate significant growth in demand for reverse osmosis systems as yacht owners and sportfishing boat owners recognize the benefits and convenience of having unlimited access to fresh, pure water. Joe Pinto is one of the U.S.’s leading experts on reverse osmosis systems and he is uniquely positioned to lead Dometic Marine’s sales effort in the watermaker marketplace,” Dometic Marine vice president for aftermarket system sales Ken Taranto said in a statement.
