Bloom Engineering reorganized its sales department into two industry-focused teams. Don Whipple and Scott Brown will head the aluminum and steel teams, respectively. Each team will focus on its own area of expertise and will be able to provide better support to existing industry customers.
Whipple has spent his entire career in combustion, with a particular focus on the aluminum industry. He has designed, commissioned and fixed systems for all facets of aluminum production. Brown, who was previously employed by a furnace OEM, has experience in steelmaking, with a particular focus on processing lines.
Matt Valancius has been promoted to director of marketing and aftersales support, including all spare-parts sales and service support. He has held various positions with Bloom over the past 12 years and most recently led the marketing group.
