As part of its growth in the Asia Pacific region UV disinfection specialist Hanovia has recently appointed Poorna Rajendran as Regional Manager for its new Singapore Representative Office.

Poorna’s main role will initially be to set up the Singapore office, which adds to the offices Hanovia has already established in the USA, Germany and China. He will also be responsible for the business development and growth of Hanovia’s UV disinfection business in South East Asia, Korea, Japan, Australia and New Zealand.

“We’re delighted to have Poorna on our team,” comments Hanovia’s Global Marketing Manager Gunvinder Bhogal. “He joins us with excellent experience in the water industry, having worked with Siemens Water Technologies (formerly USFilter) and, more recently, as Asia Business Director of Wallace & Tiernan, where he was responsible for the disinfection business and managed a wide network of channel partners across Asia.”
