Hydro Intl. has recruited Michael Jennings as chief executive and created a Global Leadership Team through strategic appointments designed to steer the international storm water and wastewater technology and services group to further business growth and product innovation.

Previously he has held leadership roles in AlliedSignal, Ingersoll-Rand and Flextronics.

Jennings’ initial focus at Hydro has been to form a Global Leadership Team. Roger Crook will join the new team in December as Hydro’s new group commercial director to lead all product management, development and marketing activities globally. Roger was previously global business development director at MBA Polymers. Before that, he spent 25 years in the pharmaceutical industry in senior roles.

Steve Hides takes on a new role as president of Hydro Americas, building on 12 years as the company’s former CEO and 30 years experience with Hydro, to focus exclusively on the company’s presence in the region.

Martin Foyle is appointed to the new role of managing director Europe to build on the success of Hydro’s Stormwater and Wastewater businesses in UK and Ireland and expand business opportunities in Europe. Foyle joined Hydro as group commercial director three years ago.

Clive Evans continues to lead Hydro’s International business with a brief to build on the significant opportunities developing for the company’s sustainable products in Russia, Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific. The Global Leadership Team is completed by Bob Andoh who continues as chief technology officer and Tony Hollox, Hydro’s CFO.
