Seakeeper, a US manufacturer of gyro stabilisation systems, has announced the appointment of three new regional sales managers.
In the US, Mark Taiclet and Grant Haugen will oversee the Southeast and West coast areas, respectively, whilst Tanja Lutz will handle sales in Northern Europe. All will focus on both commercial and leisure markets.
Marine industry veteran Taiclet brings extensive experience to his new position. He spent more than 20 years at Sea Ray Boats in sales, training and customer relations management roles. Prior to joining Seakeeper, Taiclet managed OEM, trade and retail sales for Sea Vision.
Born and raised in the Seattle, Washington area, Haugen grew up boating on Puget Sound. His industry experience includes roles at West coast dealerships, and serving as military division director at Wesmar.
Lutz, based in Hamburg, Germany, comes to her new position with a background in brokerage, sales, warranty and service. Lutz most recently worked for Seakeeper distributor Global Marine, where she helped with refit projects. She speaks German, Spanish, English and French.
“Seakeeper continues to support its world-leading gyros with superior global sales and service. We’re pleased to add three such highly-qualified individuals to our team to help meet market demand,” comments Andrew Semprevivo, Seakeeper director of global sales.
