Trim tab manufacturer Bennett Marine of Deerfield Beach, Fla., adds to its sales team with the hiring of sales manager Mike Radwanski and a new partnership with The Gartner Group and MAC-HUGH & Associates.

Radwanski will be responsible for developing and implementing sales strategies for boatbuilders. His career in the marine industry includes working as an owner/operator of a marine chandlery and repair yard, a store manager for West Marine, sales manager for Blue Sea Systems and, most recently, as an independent sales rep with Bennett Marine as one of his clients.

Bennett Marine also announced a new partnership with The Gartner Group to represent its product line to the Southeast’s leading distributors, mass merchants and original equipment manufacturers. The territory covers North and South Carolina, Tennessee and Florida.

The relationship includes additional service from Gartner’s partner, MAC-HUGH & Associates, in the areas of Alabama, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana and Texas.

“We feel very fortunate to represent a company considered to be a leader in the trim tab business,” said Kyle McHugh, MAC-HUGH president, in a statement. “When you represent a company with a long history of quality and reliability such as Bennett Marine, it makes your job that much easier.”
