Munn joins iconsys after almost 15 years at ABB, where his last position was head of sales for marine and ports.
iconsys works across industries including steel, pulp & paper, automotive, construction and intralogistics, but sees marine and ports as an important area for future growth, according to managing director Nick Darrall.
Munn said the company will initially target its propulsion systems at owners and builders of small to medium sized vessels, and that the systems are particularly suited to patrol boats, short sea ferries and windfarm vessels.
“iconsys already has a proud history of building integrated power and control systems for ‘back of deck’ applications for ships and in ports but, we are only scratching the surface of what we offer into the marine sector,” said Darrall.
“Bringing in Tim, with his background in marine automation with ABB and his work as co-chair of National Maritime’s SME working group, we want to catapult iconsys into green propulsion solutions and electrical and controls infrastructure for zero emission vessels.”
iconsys is set to move into a new purpose-built £3m headquarters, in Stafford Park, Telford.
