Resource Power Group adds three to management staff

Resource Power Group (RPG), supplier of medium speed engines and services for large bore diesel and natural gas engines, has made three recent appointments to the company’s management staff. 

“We have assembled the requisite leadership at RPG to propel our medium and slow speed engine business forward with a heightened sense of urgency for our customers,” said Robert Webb, president of Reserve, La.-based Louisiana CAT, RPG’s parent company, in an RPG press release. “This team combines commercial experience, technical experience, and a deep industry knowledge, which will help RPG to support its customers in the territory. This is an exciting development.”

Sean Carey has been named the engine sales and service company’s general manager of the MaK and large bore engine business for the southeast United States and the Caribbean territories. Carey is a U.S. Merchant Marine Academy graduate who previously was employed as a service sales manager for Wartsila North America Inc.

“With Sean’s leadership, RPG will quickly become a preferred equipment and services supplier for MaK engines and other large bore diesel and natural gas engines to customers in the U.S. and the Caribbean,” Webb said.

RPG, the authorized dealer for marine MaK engines in the southeast United States and the Caribbean territories, has also appointed Juan Carlos Perez as operations manager for its Miami operations. Perez most recently served as the general manager for contract and project management for Wartsila North America Inc. and branch manager for the Seattle and Long Beach offices. The Massachusetts Maritime Academy graduate spent 14 years there.

“Juan Carlos brings a deep understanding of the commercial and technical aspects of the marine and energy engine business. This is a very exciting appointment for RPG,” Carey said.

In addition, Jack A. Smith has been appointed technical manager for the company’s large bore engine business. Smith is a U.S. Merchant Marine Academy graduate and a 28-year veteran of the sea, having served as the chief engineer for various sea land container vessels. More recently he has also managed stationary power plants.

“Jack is a highly skilled marine engineer and troubleshooter who has a deep understanding about marine and stationary power plant operations. He brings tremendous experience and maturity to the RPG team,” Carey said.
