Ranger Tugs appointed industry veteran Mark Mansfield as sales manager.

In his new position, Mansfield will be responsible for dealer service and development in addition to sales forecasting and production scheduling in North American markets.

"Mark's 23 years in the recreational boating industry have given him a perspective based on forging strong dealer relationships," said Jeff Messmer, vice president of sales, in a statement.

"Thanks to his experience, particularly in Eastern and Central markets, we believe Mark will be very effective in further strengthening the brand and helping our dealers achieve their individual growth objectives," he added.

Founded in 1958, Ranger Tugs offers a line of traditionally styled all-composite cruisers from 21 to 29 feet.
