People & Culture


As of 1st March 2023 Mar van Sluijs leads the sales team at SolydEra. With responsibilities in sales, marketing, product management and service, he will provide comprehensive support to the executive management team and work towards the company’s profitable growth in national and international markets.

Mar steps into the CSO position in times of omnipresent uncertainty and change. The pressing issues of the energy transition and energy security demand innovative, forward-looking new technologies and infrastructures. This is precisely where SolydEra’s know-how and thus its growth potential lies.

International B-2-B sales leadership

Mar developed his international career in industrial sales & services, profitable growth strategies, regional & global leadership over a period of thirty years. Most of this period he and his family spend in emerging markets in Asia and Africa away from their home country; the Netherlands.

Mar acquired roles of increasing responsibility in the global engineering companies to whom he belonged. He is at home in the metal, marine, energy and chemical industries. From 2020 he held the role of Managing Director and Sales Director of Semperform, a division of the Semperit Group in Austria.

Mar van Sluijs will join SolydEra from the headquarters in Pergine (Italy). The SolydEra team warmly welcomes his global outlook and experience to their executive management team. “We are delighted to have gained an experienced manager in Mar, whose many years of experience and expertise will help us to consolidate and further expand the company’s economic success in the coming years,” says CEO and Chairman of the Board Dr Martin Füllenbach.
