Industry veteran T.J. Tracy has been named Director of the Marine Division at Viega LLC.
Tracy is charged with further developing the company’s fast-growing marine division. Viega offers a full line of fittings and valves designed specifically for joining pipe systems on board military vessels, commercial vessels, oil platforms, cruise ships and mega yachts.
“T.J.’s skill and experience make him the right person to help the Marine Division realize its full potential,” said Sean Debnath, vice president of sales and marketing. “The marine industry is recognizing that our flameless pressing technology is safer, faster and more efficient than the old methods of joining pipe.”
“This is an exciting opportunity for me and the company,” Tracy said. “The marine industry can be measured when embracing new ways, but because Viega’s pressing technology is such a clear improvement over welding it is quickly making inroads in the marine market. I look forward to sharing this process with more of the industry.”
Tracy has spent his entire career in the maritime industry. Prior to joining Viega, he was vice president of sales and marketing at Survitec Group & Zodiac of North America.
The Coast Guard veteran has a criminal justice degree from State University of New York College at Oswego. He and his wife have twin daughters. They live in Cambridge, Md.
