Pentair NSW Sales Manager Harry van Veen has retired after 23 years with the company. Adrian Plebani (formerly with Zodiac) has been recruited to fill the position.

Migrating to Australia in 1985, Harry started out managing a pool shop in Sydney, taking a role with Onga in 1993 as the company’s service coordinator. He briefly worked in the company’s rural business arm in 1997 before moving across to the leisure aquatics side of the business.

“Harry has been a great asset to our business ever since,” Pentair Product Manager, Aquatic Systems Robert Sterland said. “He had a great rapport with customers and was much liked around the Sydney pool industry, where I’m sure he’ll be sadly missed.”

Harry and his wife have moved to Crookwell, near Goulburn, where he’s happily embracing country life and enjoying the slower pace.

Pool+Spa wishes Harry all the very best in his well-earned retirement.
