Palladium appoints European manager


Palladium Technologies has appointed Mike Perkins its business development manager for Europe. Perkins had announced his retirement in August.

“We have known and worked with Mike for some 13 years and during that time we witnessed his dedication to the customers he served,” Palladium President Mike Blake said. “It was our belief that Mike was not quite ready to be put out to pasture. We knew that Mike makes his primary residence in Italy and with our pursuit of a stronger foothold in Europe, we approached him with a proposal to become head of our European development team. Mike accepted the challenge and is now fully engaged in that mission.”

Perkins’ marine industry career started in 1970 as master of several private yachts for more than 20 years. In 1989, he worked with Vosper Thornycroft UK as sales and marketing manager for North America. In 1999, he was appointed vice president at Quantum Marine Engineering.
