Pentair Aquatic Systems has promoted Carlos Del Amo to oversee international sales. In this role, he will be responsible for all regions outside North America, including Europe, Middle East, India, Australia, New Zealand, China, Southeast Asia, and Latin America.

“I have full faith and confidence in Carlos’s leadership,” said the firm's President Karl Frykman. “I look forward to our continued growth and customer focus across platforms and around the world.”

Pentair recently expanded its Aquatic Systems business unit to include Foodservice and Water Purification platforms, a move that will require additional support from from Del Amo.

"The excitement and energy is palpable as we start to talk about leveraging not only technologies and product development ideas, but opportunities for best practices sharing, coordinating on processes in our support functions, and other strategy synergies," Frykman said about the recent changes at the company.

Del Amo joined Pentair in 2003 as director of marketing for North America. Two years later, he was promoted to vice president of global marketing. In his newest position, Del Amo will coordinate growth strategies with Steve Zorn, vice President of Pool Platform of North America Sales.
