Maritimo boosts sales force in New Zealand
Three Kiwi industry figures join Maritimo sales push in New Zealand.
In the wake of a successful Auckland International Boat Show, luxury boat builder, Maritimo, has added three new sales representative to bolster its presence in New Zealand.
Maritimo's sales and marketing manager, Greg Haines, said the three, comprising Don Senior, Bruce McGill and Alistair Hool, would turbo-charge the company’s sales results in NZ.
"Combined they have decades of experience in the marine industry and they are all highly respected so we know they will do a great job for us," said Haines, adding that the company's results at the recent Auckland International Boat Show and the interest shown in the M65 cruising motoryacht, which travelled from the Gold Coast to NZ under its own power, bode well for Maritimo in New Zealand.
"We have always had strong interest in our products from the Kiwis, but I think with Don, Bruce and Alistair now driving hard in the market, 2016 will be a bumper year for us," he said.
Don Senior, who is located at Westhaven, has had a long association with Maritimo.
"After I finished school I moved into boat design and engineering and we ran a successful business for many years before I moved into brokerage," he said.
"In 2004 my daughter Donelle joined the company and at that time we became the agents for Maritimo in New Zealand. "We had a four year break and are now thrilled to again be representing Maritimo in this country."
Bruce McGill was the New Zealand agent for another large scale Australian boat manufacturer for many years. Alistair Hool worked for him.
The three men will work independently but co-operatively representing Maritimo in their respective market places.
"We believe this will give our current and future customers in NZ the very best service possible," said Haines.
