Sail and deck hardware supplier Barton Marine said it named Rob Lyne as its new global sales manager.
The company said Lyne will develop its product offering, international sales strategy, global distributor networks and strategic partnerships.
“We are delighted to welcome Rob to the team. He brings with him extensive experience of the marine industry, highly technical knowledge and relevant market insight, which will be a huge asset for us,” Barton Marine CEO Suzanne Blaustone said in a statement. “Rob is joining us at an exciting time as we continue to consolidate our market position, develop new products and explore new market opportunities."
The company said Lyne has more than 20 years of experience in the marine industry and will be responsible for leading the sales team and working with Barton’s international distributors to sell its products across the globe.
Lyne joins Barton Marine from Allen Brothers, where he was sales manager for eight years. The company said he is a passionate dinghy sailor who enjoys sailing Albacores and Merlin Rockets and racing remote-control model boats.
