Westinghouse hires regional president

Westinghouse Electric Co. said it hired nuclear power veteran Mark Marano to be president of its Americas region, effective May 31.

He replaces Joseph Zwetolitz, who left to become president of Babcock & Wilcox Nuclear Energy Inc. in February.

In his role at the Cranberry-based company, Marano will oversee relationships with nuclear-power customers, business plan development, and project and product delivery in the Americas.

Most recently, Marano was senior vice president for Areva NP in Charlotte. He held executive positions with GE-Hitachi and with several utilities, including American Electric Power.

“Mark brings more than 25 years of experience in both utility and vendor operations to Westinghouse,” Westinghouse CEO Danny Roderick said in a statement. “His proven track record of success and his broad range of experience in strategy, business development, commercial operations and customer relations have prepared him well for this important and highly visible position.”

Marano will work with the company's nuclear automation, fuel and power-plant and services product lines to expand Westinghouse's businesses in the Americas.

His predecessor, Zwetolitz, was the second key Westinghouse executive to leave for Babcock & Wilcox Co. in roughly the last year.

James Ferland, who headed Westinghouse's Americas region, joined Babcock & Wilcox, the nuclear energy business' parent, in April 2012. Ferland left just days before he was to succeed Aris Candris as CEO of Westinghouse.
