Marinalife adds Northeast sales manager

Marinalife added LeAnn Ingalls as its new Northeast regional sales manager.

Ingalls, who will cover the New England region from New York to Maine, joins Marinalife from Adirondack Life Magazine in upstate New York, where she expanded the magazine’s revenue in media sales. She also has experience as general manager at the Whitehall (N.Y.) Marina & RV Park.

“LeAnn’s experience in the marine industry will be a huge asset to the Marinalife team,” Marinalife president and CEO Joy McPeters said in a statement. “We are thrilled to have LeAnn join our sales team to help add to Marinalife’s continued growth.”

Ingalls will be the leading sales representative covering the Northeast region. She is responsible for targeting marinas and marine-related companies to position their brand online and in print to qualified boating members and buyers, as well as ensuring consistent and profitable growth in sales revenue in her region.

Ingalls is based out of New York and will be attending the Providence Boat Show in Rhode Island, the New England Boat Show in Boston and the Portland Boat Show in Maine.
