Intermatic Incorporated, a leader in energy management solutions, announces Oscar Ibarra has joined the company as vice president, global sales.

Ibarra’s hire is another demonstration of Intermatic’s ongoing commitment to growth and exceeding the expectations of specifiers, distributors and contractors in the US and the global marketplace.

Ibarra joins Intermatic with a strong background in the electrical and lighting controls industry, especially in the growth of international markets. After long tenured stints at both Schneider Electric and Eaton (Cooper Wiring Devices), he was most recently engaged as a consultant developing international business and distribution channels, including working on global roadway lighting projects in Europe.

In his new role, Ibarra will lead the company’s sales organization and focus on growth in North and South America, Europe, Latin America, the Caribbean and Asia.

To further strengthen Intermatic’s growth initiatives, Michael Bartindale has been appointed to the newly created position of director of sales. In this role, Bartindale will focus his efforts on the expansion into the Utility and Municipalities market. Bartindale will maintain responsibility for the Pool/Spa, HVAC/R, OEM and Retail Channels.

“I’m very pleased to have someone of Oscar’s caliber join the Intermatic leadership team and look forward to the positive influences that he will have,” says Rick Boutilier, Intermatic’s president and CEO. “And I’m equally enthusiastic about the impact that Mike will have leading our efforts to expand into new channels.”
