Ballast water treatment systems manufacturer Ecochlor, Inc. has named Steve Candito as its new CEO, effective August 8, 2017.

Candito succeeds retiring CEO, Charlie Miller, who will assist during the transition.
Tom Perlich, Ecochlor Founder and President, said, "Charlie has been instrumental in Ecochlor's growth over the last 15 years. During his tenure, we have put together a skilled and experienced team, and find ourselves positioned as a global front-runner in the BWT industry. While Charlie will be missed, I am equally confident in the leadership of his replacement, Steve Candito, as he assumes the role of our new CEO."
Prior to joining Ecochlor, Candito was Founder, President and CEO of Foresea Consulting where he provided advisory services including strategic planning, regulatory compliance and crisis management to the maritime and environmental communities. Before Foresea, he was President and CEO of National Response Corporation (NRC). During his 20+ years at NRC he grew the business from a startup to a global emergency response and environmental services firm. He has extensive experience with OPA 90 compliance issues with particular focus on vessel owner and insurance matters.
Candito was an attorney with Haight Gardner Poor & Havens from 1985 to 1993 where he specialized in maritime litigation and environmental law. He also served as a marine engineer aboard Exxon USA's domestic tanker fleet. Candito graduated from Hofstra University School of Law and the United States Merchant Marine Academy.
"My entire career has been focused on either working for or assisting ship owners, so when the Ecochlor opportunity presented itself I knew I found a way to continue those efforts within the same network," Candito said. "The Ecochlor System is different from other ballast water treatment systems (BWTS) because it truly solves a complicated need for vessels with high ballast flow rates without the high-power consumption and space requirements of other technologies. I truly believe that Ecochlor's BWTS is the best option for most ship owners. With USCG Type Approval imminent, we are getting ready to gear up to manufacture and install a record number of systems in the very near future."
