Halifax-based digital seafood software outfit, Maritech, has named a new sales manager and senior consultant to their Halifax and Seattle offices in an effort to strengthen their North American presence.

Maritech welcomed Darryll Gillard as new sales manager in Halifax, and Vergel Clavel as senior consultant in their Seattle office.

“At a time when Maritech is undergoing significant growth internationally and with substantial new product development and expansion of the seafood value chain, their addition will be invaluable as we look to define more innovative solutions for our clients and grow our presence globally, especially in North America.” Blair Shelton, Maritech NA managing director, said in a statement.

Gillard has more than 20 years of experience selling and marketing technology to small and midsized enterprises and developing, coaching and leading sales teams to continued success. He’s held sales and executive positions in local and international media organisations, the company said. He was one of the first employees at The Receivables Exchange in 2007, where he built “foundation and strategy for the sell-side program of the Exchange”.

“In his role as vice president of national accounts, Gillard spearheaded the expansion of large seller accounts, achieving over 400 percent increase in revenue. Prior to The Receivables Exchange, Mr. Gillard was European sales manager for Prism Holdings USA, a Massachusetts-based international technology company.

Clavel, a tech consultant, has over 10 years’ experience with Microsoft Dynamics NAV within the manufacturing and food and beverage industry. His recent role was as Systems Analyst for a big Seattle based water company.

“This addition to the Maritech team follows a year of steady growth marked by new investment in Maritech by Norwegian Seafood and Aquaculture Investment firm, Broodstock Capital; the acquisition of Lillebakk Engineering, a fast-growing Norwegian company focused on Industrial IoT, and further successful expansion into the North American seafood software market.
