New Vice President Membrane Solutions for MANN+HUMMEL
Marco Nava, Managing Director of MICRODYN-NADIR Italy (Oltremare S.p.A.), has been appointed the new Vice President Membrane Solutions at MANN+HUMMEL and Managing Director of the MICRODYN-NADIR Group. The appointment is effective April 2020.
Marco served as Managing Director for MICRODYN-NADIR Italy since the company’s 2018 acquisition of OLTREMARE SPA, where he previously served as Chief Executive Officer. Under his guidance, OLTREMARE was established as one of Europe’s leading private-label reverse osmosis spiral-wound membrane manufacturers. In addition to his role with MICRODYN-NADIR, Marco serves as CEO for a number of specialty corporations.
'We are delighted to win Marco for this new role, managing our global Water business at MANN+HUMMEL. We are convinced he will bring great value with his decades of experience and large network within the membrane business,' said Fua Nipah, President & General Manager Life Sciences & Environment of MANN+HUMMEL.
Marco replaces Walter Lamparter, who has been CEO of the MICRODYN-NADIR Group since 2005. Walter will move to an external advisor role where he will consult with the company while pursuing other interests outside of MANN+HUMMEL.
'I would like to thank Walter Lamparter for his great commitment. He was responsible for the significant growth of the MICRODYN-NADIR business and helped MANN+HUMMEL to further develop water and membrane solutions. We regret his departure, but are delighted to continue to benefit from his expertise in the future,' Fua Nipah said.
