GLM Products names national sales manager


Monrovia, Calif.-based GLM Products named Paul Smith as the company's new national sales manager.

Smith, who brings more than 35 years of marine industry experience, will be responsible for the entire North American market through his sales office in Fort Lauderdale.

“I’m very excited to be working with GLM again. It’s great to be back,” Smith said in a statement.

Smith owned a marine manufacturers’ representative agency in the Southeast for more than 22 years until he took a national sales manager position with another marine company a few years ago. His former representative agency, Paul L. Smith & Associates, sold the GLM line of products for more than 20 years.
