Clairet promoted by H2O Innovation

Guillaume Clairet has been promoted by membrane water-treatment company H2O Innovation Inc to the newly created position of vice president, strategic business development.

While Clairet will remain closely involved in developing Quebec-based H2O Innovation’s international sales of equipment and systems, in his new role he will be responsible for promoting H2O Innovation’s growth worldwide.

Announcing the promotion on 14 July 2011, Frédéric Dugré, president and CEO of H2O Innovation, said Clairet will be responsible for identifying targeted global regions and for developing strategy (joint venture, partnership, acquisition) that will enable the company to establish and sustain long-term, profitable growth in the selected areas.

He will continue involvement within these regions by serving as H2O Innovation’s point person regarding ongoing strategic initiatives: identification of resources needed and coordination with the existing team to provide training and support. In this capacity, Guillaume will also serve as the key point person related to the parent company’s dealings with H2O Innovation India, and he will work with the Professional Water Technologies team (H2O Innovation’s California business unit) to support the expansion of the recurring revenue business.
