Changing Places

Dometic Marine appointed Joseph Schwab as account manager for aftermarket sales in Florida.

Based at Dometic’s Pompano Beach office, Schwab will be working alongside Ken Taranto, vice president of U.S. aftermarket sales, and will have key responsibility for supporting aftermarket customers in this key boating region.

Previously a customer support tech at Dometic Marine, Schwab brings a wealth of technical knowledge to his new role. His extensive experience at the company includes test engineering, customer support, warranty, application development, training and technical support.

“I look forward to the many new challenges that await me,” Schwab said in a statement. “I have been in the shoes of a dealer and a distributor, so I know the demands and expectations that are required of one to truly support the customer. Confidence, humility and experience will allow me to better serve our customers. I believe it is the people of Dometic Marine that honestly make the difference and are the reason we are No. 1 in the industry.”
