US-based marine sanitation manufacturer Raritan Engineering has promoted Vinod Mehta to the role of CEO. Mehta has served as Raritan’s VP of engineering for 38 years.

"In his role as VP, Vinod was instrumental in developing Raritan into the technology-driven company it is today," says Bret Bretnall, director of the board. "He has that rare combination of leadership acumen, engineering expertise and strategic vision that positions Raritan to continue on its strong growth trajectory and maintain its standing as a pioneer within the industry."

Mehta has a proven track record of leading large-scale projects and is a holder of several US patents. His most recent accomplishments include bringing to market the world's first Bluetooth Flush Control and the PH PowerFlush, the only electric toilet that easily converts to manual flush.

Mehta will be at the METSTRADE Show in Amsterdam this week on Stand 2.404.

Bret Bretnall will continue in his role as Raritan’s director of the board, a position he has held for seven years.
