Pacific Green Technologies Group is delighted to welcome Steven Matthew as Sales Director of its new Asia office located in Hong Kong. Steven will be focusing on marine technology and other environmental technologies and will oversee the growth of the Asian business.
Steven is a marine engineer, lawyer and commercial executive, experienced in the shipping and marine environmental fields. He’s been active in and around the marine and environmental technology sectors for nearly 30 years, working for companies such as Shell, Holman Fenwick Willan, Hyde Marine and ASP Ship Management.
Scott Poulter, Pacific Green Technologies’ CEO said, “Steven is a fantastic addition to the team, as we expand our business throughout Asia in marine tech and other environmental technologies. We have found someone like-minded, as evidenced by Steven’s great work with environmental issues, such as his involvement in A Plastic Ocean Foundation, a charitable organization, registered in Hong Kong, dedicated to stopping plastic pollution. Furthermore his experience in many areas of the marine environmental business, makes him the perfect person to launch our Hong Kong office.”
Most recently Steven has led the development of companies in Asia that have devised technologies to combat the spread of marine invasive aquatic species in ships ballast water and has also worked with companies such as Bio-UV Group which are focused on clean water.
Steven said, “As a long term resident of Hong Kong, I am really looking forward to expanding the group’s presence where I will initially lead as Sales Director for both marine scrubber technologies and PGT’s other environmental technologies. These are very exciting times to be part of a fast-growing environmental tech company, such as Pacific Green, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be here. I hope we can achieve great things together.”
