Filtersafe has announced Mark Riggio joined the company as marine division head on 3 August 2020
Mark Riggio has joined Filtersafe from Hyde Marine, where he was senior market manager for more than nine years. Mr Riggio brings his experience in the maritime industry to Filtersafe to help continue the growth of the company as a marine equipment supplier.
Filtersafe filtration systems are installed in over 3,000 vessels. The company’s chief operating officer Miyan Mears-Dagan said, “With Mark joining Filtersafe’s leadership team, we are reinforcing our commitment to deliver quality products and services to not only the ballast water treatment segment but the wider marine industry. We have full confidence in Mark and his unique qualities to bring us to new heights.”
Mr Riggio arrives at Filtersafe with his unique perspective of the industry, having voyaged through the three distinct and critical parts of the maritime landscape: classification, port and fleet management, and ballast water treatment technology designer and manufacturer.
“I could not be more excited about this opportunity” said Mr Riggio. “Filtersafe is poised not only to be the dominant player in the ballast water filtration market but they also have the personnel and product portfolio to tackle the broad range of challenges that ships face with contaminants in their process waters. Ballast water treatment is only the leading edge of this opportunity.”
Mr Riggio was the first president and founding member of the ballast water treatment technology providers trade association BEMA.
