Digital Yacht names Florida sales rep

U.K.-based Digital Yacht announced that Coastar Marketing president Brad Good will represent the company in Florida.

Good launched Coastar Marketing in 1984 after working as a technician and advancing to materials management and becoming a general manager for two dealerships.

“When I spoke to some of our existing distributors and contacts in America asking for recommendations for a sales representative in Florida, one name continually came up, and that was Brad’s,” Digital Yacht chief executive Nick Heyes said in a statement.

“It’s a real coup for Digital Yacht to have Brad represent us and I feel very confident that his involvement will strengthen and help Digital Yacht grow enormously over the coming years.”
