Hoover Container Solutions has announced three new changes to its senior management team, supporting its continued global growth. Joseph Levy has been appointed senior vice president and chief financial officer; Johan Wramsby has been appointed senior vice president and chief operating officer; and Arash Hassanian has been appointed senior vice president, global sales and marketing.
Levy will manage Hoover’s complex banking relationships, worldwide IT efforts, merger and acquisition activity, integration initiatives and extensive consolidation of international financial reporting. Levy has more than 25 years of capital investment experience and has served on the Hoover Materials Handling Group board since 2008.
Wramsby will be responsible for North American operations, which include manufacturing, service, technology and transportation. He will also be responsible for the continued integration of the TechOil and Hoover Offshore businesses. Wramsby has been with Hoover for 15 years, previously as financial analyst, controller and chief administrative officer.
Hassanian will manage and oversee worldwide efforts to drive sales, marketing and business development. He will continue to ensure consistent global marketing messaging and branding, while managing operations in Malaysia, Brazil, the UAE and Australia. He will ultimately transition management of those businesses to operations once they reach a substantial size. Hassanian has been with Hoover for more than a decade, serving as purchasing manager, international business development director and vice president of international sales and global marketing.
Hoover’s chairman and chief executive officer, Donald W. Young, says, “Within Hoover, upper executives guide our company towards our strategic goals, focusing on differentiating our product lines of fluids, cargo and waste supported by technology and services. Since 2010, Hoover has grown from two locations to 15 global locations; from 65 employees to more than 300 employees; and from USD 20 million to more than USD 100 million in revenue. As part of this ongoing process of growth, we have evaluated our organisation to ensure optimum structure and processes that will deliver the highest value to our customers and shareholders. These appointments recognise the significance of each of their contributions to the organisation’s success.”
