NMRA names new officers, directors

Posted on

The National Marine Representatives Association recently named its 2009-2010 officers and board members.

Jeff Gueterman of GSW & Associates, Apex, N.C., is now the president of NMRA. Past president is Tim Luehmann of SM Osgood Co., Eden Prairie, Minn.

“As president of NMRA, I’ll work to continue to promote the opportunities independent sales reps offer the marine industry,” Gueterman said in a statement. “During these tough economic times, reps can help expand a manufacturer’s reach, visiting dealers and distributors they might not have the capital or manpower to contact.”

Rick Silverlake of Silverlake West Co., Huntington Beach, Calif., was named vice president, and Chris Kelly of Waters & David Co., New Orleans, is treasurer. Kathy Munzinger of Munzinger & Co., Springfield, Mo., joins the officers as secretary after serving on the NMRA board of directors.

Two new members were elected to serve three-year terms on the six-seat NMRA board of directors. They are Ken Smaga of ComMar Sales LLC, Tiverton, R.I., and Chris Martorana of Macaroni Marketing, Watsonville, Calif.

They join existing NMRA board members Tom LaSanta of Anchor Sales and Marketing, Bayou Vista, Texas; Louis Diaz of Charles A. Perry & Co., Lexington, S.C.; Ivan Cross of Merifield Co., Camano Island, Wash.; and W.M. (Pat) Black of W.M. Black & Co., Mentor-On-The-Lake, Ohio.
