Seakeeper announces the appointment of three new regional sales managers. In the US, Mark Taiclet and Grant Haugen will oversee the Southeast and West coasts respectively. Tanja Lutz will handle sales in Northern Europe. All of them will deal with both commercial and leisure markets.
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 Director at Western Marine Electronics.
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.
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 relation’s management roles. Prior to joining Seakeeper, Taiclet managed original equipment manufacturing, trade and retail sales for Sea Vision.
“Seakeeper continues to support its world-leading gyros with superior global sales and service,” says Andrew Semprevivo, Seakeeper Director of Global Sales and Service. “We’re pleased to add three such highly-qualified individuals to our team to help meet market demand.”
