Pelican Products, Inc., global headquarters of Peli Products, has promoted Scott Ermeti to President of International Business.

Over the course of 20+ years, Scott worked his way up through Pelican’s ranks starting out as the National Sales Manager for their Industrial Division. Most notably, he served as Pelican’s first official employee located outside the United States and he established Peli Products, the company’s European headquarters in Barcelona, Spain. Under his leadership Pelican’s international business has become a powerful global brand and now accounts for 30% of the company’s annual revenue. Prior to Scott’s promotion he was serving as Pelican’s Senior Vice President of International Business.

In his new position, he will report directly to Phil Gyori and have full profit and loss responsibility for Pelican’s entire international business (excluding BioThermal) which includes sales, marketing, manufacturing and distribution in more than 100 countries around the globe.

"Scott’s understanding of Peli and the global marketplace make him uniquely qualified to continue to spearhead Pelican’s global operations,” said Phil Gyori, Group President of Pelican Products. “I’m confident that his customer-centric approach, vision, and proven leadership will continue to yield next level products and services tailored to our customers abroad.”

Scott has been appointed by the U.S. Secretary of Commerce to serve on the boards of two prestigious organisations; the Industry Trade Advisory Council (ITAC) and the District Export Council. He is also a member of the Outdoor Industry Association’s Trade Advisory Council (OIATAC). These three organisations serve as advocates for the Aerospace, Outdoor and Small/Medium Business industries’ trade agendas with members of Congress and the White House. His service on these boards helps the United States Government and member companies form foreign trade policy including importing, exporting, domestic manufacturing and small/medium-size business support.

Before joining Pelican, Scott worked with Bata Brands (Lausanne, Switzerland), one of the world’s largest manufacturers and retailers of footwear. He holds a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from the University of Chicago’s Booth School of  Business and a Bachelor’s degree from Indiana University.
