Muir Windlasses Australia has added two new team members to its Hobart headquarters in anticipation of a busy 2014.

Grant Asher has taken on the role of chief financial officer, while Peter Brown joins the company as Muir’s design and procurement specialist.

Asher previously served as head of finance at Hobart Airport. He has a wealth of knowledge in accounting and business practices in the UK and Australia, and strong experience within manufacturing industries.

Peter Brown’s new role was created to focus on sourcing quality components offshore.

Muir builds windlasses and anchoring systems for yachts of up to 150m (492ft) in length. In addition to its Australian headquarters, the company has a strong global presence with bases in the US and Europe.
