Pleatco is pleased to announce and welcome Scott Gleason as its new vice president of business development. Gleason brings a great deal of pool and spa industry experience to the job, including 16 years as national sales manager for Unicel.

“We are very excited to welcome Scott to Pleatco,” says Howard Smith, CEO. “Not only will he bring a wealth of experience to our sales team, but also be a great ambassador for our brand as we concentrate our expansion both domestically and internationally. We recognize Scott’s proven track record of success and look forward to having him represent Pleatco.”

“This is a great opportunity for growth in my career,” Gleason adds. “Pleatco is a very innovative, forward-thinking company, always striving to improve on their product. The position I’ve taken with Pleatco will give me a chance to be part of that, which is exciting.”

As for his role, Gleason says, “I’ll be able to contribute to a number of areas of the company, other than just direct sales. My title is vice president of business development, so I’ll be wearing a number of different hats.
