L-R Federico Verona, Matthew Johnston and Luca Signorini

Muir Windlasses Australia has appointed Federico Verona to join its Italian team as factory representative. The appointment, the manufacturer says, responds to increasing international demand for Muir products.

Verona joins Muir Italian team with strong industry knowledge. He will work with distributor Luca Signorini to increase its presence throughout Italy, France and Turkey.

Managing director Matthew Johnston comments: “We’ve strengthened our sales force in the last six months with the appointment of Stephen Vincent as the global superyacht sales manager focussing on the regions of Asia and the US, and now with the appointment of Federico Verona to concentrate on Italy, Turkey and France, alongside our distributors.”

Johnston will continue to look after key accounts in Europe; particularly the Netherlands, UK and Germany, as well as in Australia and the Middle East.

Both Verona and Signorini will be based in key Italian boating hubs, with Verona in Viareggio and Signorini in Lavorno.

Muir produces custom-built anchor winch systems for superyachts ranging 70m to 150m, and has been supplying well-known European superyacht builders for many years.
