Bonnier Marine Group named Paul Smith, the former Northeast sales director at ShowBoats International, as its non-endemic sales manager.

"Bonnier continues to invest and grow our multimedia platforms," said Glenn Hughes, Bonnier Marine Group publisher. "Paul will be an integral part of that growth by connecting our niche markets with the non-endemic business in New York."

Smith will be based at Bonnier's Park Avenue office in New York. In addition to the non-endemic work, Smith will focus on travel accounts with New York agencies. He has 25 years of experience in advertising sales and formerly worked for the Men's Enthusiast Network.
