Power & Motoryacht named Jessica Schultz to take over advertising sales in the Southeast.

Schultz will take over Southeast brokerage and key accounts previously represented by Cindy Sailor, who accepted the executive director position at the Florida Yacht Brokers Association.

Power & Motoryacht and Soundings Trade Only are part of Active Interest Media’s Marine Group.

“We’re excited to welcome a seasoned professional such as Jessica, and are also happy that we will be able to continue working closely with Cindy in her new role,” Power & Motoryacht publisher Arnie Hammerman said in a statement.

Schultz has more than 10 years of magazine experience, most of which is in marine media. Her most recent position was at Gulf Shore Life. Previously she was the West Coast sales manager for both Boating and MotorBoating. Prior to that, she was an account executive at Boating Life, Water Ski, and Wakeboarding magazines.

A Florida native, Jessica has spent her life around boats and the marine environment.

“Her experience in the marine industry, as well as her understanding of the media business, makes her ideally suited as the newest member of the Power & Motoryacht team. I am confident she will work closely with our clients to find innovative solutions to their marketing needs and help them grow their businesses,” said Hammerman, who is also publisher of Anglers Journal, another AIM Marine Group publication.
