Changing Places

Bill Griffin is the new general manager of Fawcett Boat Supplies.

“Bill brings many years of experience gained at Fawcett in store sales, store management, rigger, operations manager and most recently as the outside sales rep,” the company said in a statement. “Bill also brings lots of energy, as well as enthusiasm for the sport.”

As a result of this change, Fawcett will be adding two outside sales reps to replace Griffin, the company announced, and it is seeking additional sales reps to help staff its store.

Annapolis, Md.-based Fawcett is a locally owned, independent marine supplier, and is staffed by boaters, many of whom live aboard.
