Sweden-based propulsion systems manufacturer Marine Jet Power has named Mia Vikner as its new chief operating officer. Vikner assumes responsibility for operational efficiencies as well as process implementation to drive the continued growth of the company, which manufactures waterjet propulsion systems for performance yachts and commercial vessels.
“We are a growing company,” says Marine Jet Power CEO, Magnus Sörenson. “Mia’s expertise will ensure that our continued growth will be sustainable and efficient while furthering relationships with suppliers and vendors worldwide for an optimised supply chain.
