Glidecoat, the Smart Surface Technology provider of Nano Coating, is pleased to announce its recent hire of Ken Rohlman, who today joins the team as Chief Product Officer (CPO).

He comes to Glidecoat with over 13 years of experience in the marine industry. Rohlman is a licensed Master Captain with a 100 Gross Tonnage rating and a Near Coastal and Towing Endorsement.

The CPO was most recently at the helm of his own company, Echelon Yacht Management LLC. His personal portfolio included brokerage, Captain’s services and marine maintenance.
