“This is an exciting opportunity to join a business which manufactures unique technical solutions to repair existing pipelines using trenchless technology,” Roukens says. “I see fantastic opportunities for Trelleborg’s pipe seals to achieve further significant growth with the pipeline rehabilitation industry. Existing infrastructure is aging and the need to maintain pipeline networks and the environment become ever more critical.”

Yanzo started his new position Jan. 8 and brings with him more than 20 years of successful sales, sales management and marketing experience working for industrial manufacturers. He also received a MBA at New Hampshire University. This experience will help prepare him to grow Trelleborg’s rehab market share in North America through the expansion of our direct sales force. All rehab sales team members will report to Yanzo.
