CWR Electronics said it has hired Mark Dew as outside sales representative for the Florida area.
CWR said Dew will cultivate new business relationships in Florida as a part of efforts to introduce the distributor of marine, outdoor, and consumer recreational products nationwide.
"With Mark's impressive sales experience and knowledge directly reaching key dealers, retailers and installers, he will help us establish CWR's presence across the country," CWR president Brian Swanke said in a statement.
Most recently, Dew was a yacht sales executive at American Marine in Jacksonville, Fla. There he developed and managed a $1.4 million inventory average and generated quick inventory turns with his marketing and customer networking skills, CWR said.
The company said Dew was also a No. 1 core sales associate at West Marine in Jacksonville. Previously, he worked as a territory manager at Conex Forest Products in Jacksonville, as principal marine surveyor at Ship Shape Marine Surveying in Neptune Beach and as first mate aboard the "Sovereign" yacht.
He has an associate’s degree from Midlands Technical College and has completed yacht and small craft surveying and professional mariner training at the Chapman School of Seamanship.
