Vacuworx has announced an addition to its international sales team as the company continues to explore and develop new opportunities for the faster, safer and smarter handling of pipeline and construction materials worldwide.
Christian Sellan has been hired as Area Business Manager for Southern Latin America. Sellan began his career with Vacuworx in 2017 as a sales representative. Building on past successes, Sellan will continue his support and development of Vacuworx customers in Chile, Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay and Argentina. At the same time, he is working to identify new business opportunities and growth potential in target markets as the Tulsa-based manufacturer expands its network of qualified distributors.
Sellan, based in Santiago, Chile, reports to Steve Smith, Director of International Sales. Smith, who has more than 20 years of international sales experience and a territory that includes Europe, Latin America, South Asia and the Middle East, is charged with expanding the presence of Vacuworx around the world.
With a proactive, service-oriented approach to sales, marketing and global logistics, Sellan and Smith are focused on building brand loyalty through dedicated service and the adaptation of vacuum lifting solutions to meet specific needs.
Sellan, an industrial engineer by trade, has a diverse entrepreneurial background with experience in the sectors of transportation and logistics, information technology and retail sales. Smith, who earned a bachelor’s degree in business management from Oral Roberts University, joined Vacuworx in 2011.
“The strong partnerships we’ve developed in Europe and other parts of the world have helped create a springboard and a lot of interest in Vacuworx,” Smith said. “We are focused on areas in which we can we bring the most value to the customer. From oil and gas pipelines to mining, water resources, civil construction and other industries, the potential is really high and rising alongside demands for improved safety standards.”
