HydroHoist said it added Mike Flounlacker as Southeast regional manager.

Flounlacker, who is based in Pensacola, Fla., attended Florida State University and the University of West Florida before making his career as a government contractor for marine construction and engineering.

HydroHoist said Flounlacker’s contracting revolved around business development, which he sees as an important aspect in achieving HydroHoist’s success in the region.

“We see strong potential in southeastern Florida, and Mike’s expertise and work experience will play an important role in bringing our products to market,” HydroHoist CEO Mick Webber said in a statement.
