Marco Nava takes on his new role as Vice President Membrane Solutions with MANN+HUMMEL
Marco Nava has been part of the MANN+HUMMEL Group since 2018 and has grown our Italian Water Business with great success ever since. In his previous role, he has served as Managing Director for MICRODYN-NADIR Italy since the company’s 2018 acquisition of Oltremare S.p.A., where he previously served as Chief Executive Officer. Under his guidance, Oltremare was established as Europe’s leading private-label reverse osmosis spiral-wound membrane manufacturer. In addition to his role with MICRODYN-NADIR, Marco serves as CEO for a number of specialty corporations.
“We are delighted to win Marco for this new role, managing our global Water business at MANN+HUMMEL. We are convinced he will bring great value with his decades of experience and large network within the membrane business,” said Fua Nipah, President & General Manager Life Sciences & Environment of MANN+HUMMEL.
Walter Lamparter, CEO of the MANN+HUMMEL company MICRODYN-NADIR, declared his desire to transition to an external advisor role where he could consult with the company while pursuing other interests outside of MANN+HUMMEL. He joined the MANN+HUMMEL group with the acquisition of MICRODYN-NADIR in 2014. Beginning April 2020, Walter Lamparter will continue to cooperate closely with the company and will support the MANN+HUMMEL Life Sciences & Environment team with his valuable expertise.
“I would like to thank Walter Lamparter for his great commitment. He was responsible for the significant growth of the MICRODYN-NADIR business and helped MANN+HUMMEL to further develop water and membrane solutions. We regret his departure, but are delighted to continue to benefit from his expertise in the future,” Fua Nipah said.
