Since joining Mono as Customer Service Manager in 1987, Paul has progressed through a variety of roles and has been instrumental in achieving the significant levels of growth that Mono has experienced around the world.
One of Paul’s key contributions has been to build a strong management team within the company. Two members of that team, Steve Valentine and Dave Johnson, will now take on expanded roles and lead the Eastern Hemisphere NOV Mono Industrial team for which Paul was previously responsible.
Steve Valentine will take on the role of Managing Director, NOV Mono Industrial, and will be responsible for the UK, Europe, Middle East, Northern Africa, and China. Steve has a financial and manufacturing background and joined Mono as Group Financial Director in 1999. Following Mono’s acquisition by NOV in January 2003 he contributed valuable financial expertise to support the successful expansion of the business.
“We have never been in a stronger position in terms of our product offering, cost competitiveness, and genuine global commercial presence,” comments Steve Valentine. “My role now is to continue to grow the business, complete the relocation of our Manchester manufacturing site and integrate the Robbins and Myers companies that are now part of NOV Mono”.
Dave Johnson will become the Managing Director for NOV Mono Industrial, and will be responsible for Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, the Pacific Islands, South Africa, India, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. Dave joined Mono 25 years ago as IT Manager, and has most recently worked as the NOV Country Controller for Australia.
