Intellihot names new CRO ahead of planned expansion

Intellihot, a technology company creating solutions to transform the built environment, has appointed Santanu (Sean) Debnath as chief revenue officer, a new position created to support the company amid its planned expansion in 2022.

Debnath, who joins the company with nearly 30 years of experience in corporate leadership, will help to steer Intellihot’s planned expansion in 2022 and beyond. As CRO, he will report directly to Intellihot President/CEO Sridhar Deivasigamani and have primary responsibility for all functions that bring in revenue in addition to managing the company’s sales and marketing teams.

“Amid a global mandate to address the threat of climate change, industries increasingly recognize the importance of reducing emissions and improving energy efficiency,” Deivasigamani said. “As a result, demand for Intellihot’s clean technology has skyrocketed. As chief revenue officer, Sean Debnath will play an instrumental role in our planned expansion as we work tirelessly to meet the clean technology needs of our customer base with added offices, staff and product lines. We are thrilled to add Sean to the Intellihot team.”

Intellihot’s clean technology products, which include commercial water heaters carefully designed for increased efficiency, reliability, safety and sustainability, are used across the country by large facilities including hotels, restaurants, stadiums, hospitals and more. Current Intellihot customers include Hilton, Marriott, Hyatt, Benihana and Levi’s Stadium, home of the NFL’s San Francisco 49ers.

“It is a privilege to join Intellihot and lead a focused and innovative team that is addressing some of the most pressing sustainability issues facing commercial enterprises,” Debnath said. “The next year will be a game-changer for Intellihot and the customers Intellihot works with, and we have the potential to truly reshape the future of the sustainable built environment. I couldn’t be more excited to get started.”

Before joining Intellihot, he led the sales and marketing team at Viega LLC, a Denver-based manufacturer of press fittings serving the commercial, industrial and residential verticals. Prior to that, he held various VP and director-level positions in sales, marketing and product development at Kaydon, Rexnord, Thermo Fisher Scientific and Mitsubishi Chemical.
