A few weeks ago HZO quietly brought on a new team member, and in the process, quietly started an official expansion into Europe. While we tend to not make a lot of noise with many new hires, we thought this one was worth mention as it is another step forward in broadening HZO’s global footprint. With efforts already underway to introduce our technology to new organizations and industries throughout Europe (our water resistant technology is already designed into the top e-reader in Germany), the addition of Simone Maraini as President of HZO Europe is both a timely and important addition to the HZO management team and the organization as a whole.
In addition to being an exceptionally smart and likable guy, we’re thrilled to welcome Simone for a variety of reasons. For example, Europe holds an enormous amount of potential in a diverse range of industries including automotive, medical, military, wearables and consumer electronics. Now HZO has a presence in the region, indicating our commitment to building relationships, partnerships and growing our business in that part of the world.
It’s also exciting to immediately recognize the value and impact people bring to the organization. Mr. Maraini comes with deep financial expertise and strategic business development planning in hyper-growth organizations, mergers and acquisitions and financial model development. In a short amount of time his influence has already been felt throughout the organization.
We know HZO gets stronger and smarter with every new hire. That’s because so much is invested to make sure the right person is hired in the right role at the right time to help us push our initiatives forward. We’ve got big plans for 2015, and the addition of Simone can be chalked up as another superb addition to the growing and evolving team and rich cultural diversity that HZO fosters. It’s just one of the things that makes this such a unique, compelling and exciting place to work.
Keep your eye on HZO throughout the year. As always, we have ambitious goals, and we push hard day and night to do everything we can to work with the makers of electronics and get more HZO Protected devices in the hands of consumers and end users.
