David Daft joins Waterco as product training manager

February 27th, 2024

Industry veteran David Daft has been appointed as Waterco’s new product training manager.

Daft will oversee the company’s learning and development programs across eight global divisions including Australia, New Zealand, the European Union, the USA, Malaysia, China, Singapore and Indonesia.

Daft’s career in the swimming pool and spa sector began in 1999 with Polaris Pool Systems and included a 24-year tenure with Fluidra.

He says his primary goal is to ensure that the company’s sales and service employees, as well as potential customers and partners, have a comprehensive understanding of the products and services offered by Waterco.

“This will involve cultivating strong relationships with the product managers; the mechanical, electrical and software engineers; the state managers; and the sales teams to ensure that our training programs align with their needs and goals,” he says.

“I also look forward to working with Davey Water Australia to stay informed and updated with their new product developments and training methodologies, to ensure our educational programs platforms remain relevant and practical.”

Waterco Group COO Bryan Goh says Daft’s appointment comes at a time of significant international growth for Waterco, and the new role will be key to grow awareness and understanding of its ever increasing suite of products.

“David has great passion and enthusiasm for the pool and spa industry and brings with him a wealth of expertise in technical support and training,” Goh says, adding that his insights on the highly competitive, multi-billion dollar pool and spa sector will be an asset.

“I am thrilled to have been offered this opportunity with Waterco,” says Daft.

“With a great team in place here to support me and a product range that’s renowned worldwide for its water and energy saving innovations, I look forward to being a part of the company’s ongoing success.”
