Ian Mewett has retired from Compass Pools, passing on the baton to Anthony Cross. We caught up with him at SPLASH! 2014 and asked about the key moments in his long career, and the changes that have affected the fibreglass pool segment of the Australian and international industry. It makes for enthralling viewing for everyone in the industry, even moreso if you’re involved in this sector.
This is the first in a series of interviews recorded at SPLASH! 2014, which also includes Clark Hale, president of Hayward Industries, Inc; Matt Kimball, global director of product management at Pentair; Tom Lachocki, CEO of the National Swimming Pool Foundation (NSPF); and David Sizelove, president & CEO of Aquatherm Industries, Inc. These interviews will be uploaded over the coming weeks.
