Marine people: new faces, new places
New sales appointments for Horizon Yacht Australia and Dunbier Mackay.
Horizon Yacht Australia has appointed Tony Jones as it a new national sales manager, joining Mark Western and Erica Rae at the company's office at Sanctuary Cove.
Having started out as a marine engineer on the Gold Coast, Jones has previously worked with both Riviera and Maritimo.
“I was with both of those companies for roughly 10 years each, which took me all over the world, first as a service manager and then into a sales position. I am excited to be joining Horizon as they move into the next phase of the brand’s development in our region.”
Jones said that, throughout his career, he had admired the Horizon motor yachts and was impressed with the company’s ambition and evolution over three decades.
“Horizon has been around for over 30 years, they are a solid, financially strong and reputable luxury yacht builder giving them a durable competitive advantage over so many other yacht manufacturers,” he said.
“I was motivated to take up the opportunity at Horizon because of the outstanding quality of the product range. As soon as the dealership network became factory owned and backed the decision was very easy. It means that we can take trades, organise events for clients, deliver exceptional service.
“There is just a whole heap of excitement around the decision and what we can now do with Horizon Yachts in Australia and New Zealand.”
New sales rep for Dunbier Mackay
Trailer manufacturer Dunbier Mackay has appointed Stephanie Reid to the Victorian office as a sales representative for both parts and trailers. She will be assisting Darren Moore (Victorian, South Australia and Tasmania state manager) in all aspects of sales, and merchandising across dealerships.
Stephanie is the latest member of the Dunbier family to join the family-owned company, bringing with her a great deal of knowledge and pride in the Dunbier Mackay range. Having recently finished a four-year degree in communications and marketing overseas, she also has knowledge and skill in media and merchandising.
“I am looking forward to bringing in new marketing and sales ideas within the dealer network to help expand the Dunbier Mackay brand and increase sales for our dealers,” she said.
