Board of Directors

Pierre Martel

My name is Pierre Martel, I have been working for Wajax for 24+ years as Director Fluid Power leading vendor relations, strategy, and the Products Application Specialists team. I have been involved with the CFPA since 2015.  Over the years I have chaired the Market Insight and Membership committees, and today as a Director, I’m working with a few Chair leaders to support the CFPA initiatives.

Mark Scholz: B.Comm, MBA

National Sales Manager for Parker Hannifin Canada, a worldwide leader in the Motion and Control and Fluid Power industry.

I am new to the board, however I am looking forward to contributing to the CFPA to support the direction and awareness of the association.

There are many technological changes occurring at a rapid pace in our industry such as electrification and networked smart devices with diagnostic and data collection capability (IoT). At this time, I feel that there are not enough young people enrolled in STEM programs that are aware of fluid power to consider a career path in the industry. We, as the CFPA membership, will need to educate and encourage our younger generation to pursue a rewarding career in this industry.

Daniel Killin, MBA

Supply Chain Manager, Procurement and Product Management, Applied Industrial Technologies

In my current role I lead the Supply Chain with a focus on Product and Procurement Management. Having completed my MBA as well as being PMP accredited, I continually achieve superior performance by challenging the status quo; developing innovative solutions for the day-to-day challenges; and providing a fresh perspective on strategic opportunities.

My goal is to do the same with the CFPA. As chair of the Market Insight Committee I plan to expand upon the excellent work that has already been completed by my predecessor. Additionally, I am excited to promote the other resources and industry opportunities that result from being part of such a strong association, including the education expansion, industrial resources, and networking potential.
