Clean technology company Silverstream Technologies has announced a number of new appointments to support both the increasing demand and uptake of its air lubrication technology, the Silverstream System, as well as the continued substantial global growth of the company.
The significant expansion of the Silverstream team – by 90 per cent – during 2020, and amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, demonstrates the company’s position in the shipping industry, the durability of its operations and the increasing demand for radical and proven clean technologies to increase fuel efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Senior leadership appointments include Gideon Overton as the company’s new finance director; Pete Dymond as head of contract management; Daniel Mann as programme director; Simon Cuthbert as head of supply chain management; and Andrew Wall as head of QSHE.
Gideon Overton, who joins the company as the new finance director, will apply his extensive experience from his previous roles as chief financial officer at technology company Data Lab, and vice president, accounting services Europe for Xerox Services.
Pete Dymond joins Silverstream as head of contract management, following roles as senior contract engineer at Fluor and sub-contracts manager at Kellogg Brown and Root.
Following his most recent role as vice president of business development, at Ethos Energy, Daniel Mann is Silverstream’s new programme director responsible for the organisation’s indirect sales channel. Andrew Wall has also joined the company as head of QSHE reporting, having previously worked as vice president for quality and manufacturing improvement for Rolls Royce Marine. Simon Cuthbert joins as head of supply chain management having also previously worked for Rolls Royce Marine as senior vice president in the procurement unit.
In addition to these appointments, Silverstream has also expanded its technical, operations, and administration teams, and continues to seek new talent to support and drive its growth.
Noah Silberschmidt, chief executive officer, Silverstream Technologies, said: “We’ve delivered significant and exponential growth over the past two years, and it’s critical that we have the infrastructure and the right people with the right experience in place to ensure that we continue on this trajectory and meet our ambitious targets.
“Our continued expansion during COVID-19 also highlights the attitudinal change within the industry as it acknowledges the shift that is required to meet shipping’s decarbonisation targets. Viable clean technologies play a critical role in delivering this widescale change, creating a more sustainable and profitable industry.
“We are looking forward to welcoming our new recruits to the Silverstream team, and know the integration of their combined experience will be of immense value, not only in strengthening our position as a market leading and pioneering clean technology supplier but also in increasing widespread adoption of the Silverstream System.”
