Propspeed Hires Mid-Atlantic Sales Manager


Propspeed appointed Darron Zimmer as Mid-Atlantic regional sales manager and technical support.

Zimmer is an experienced coatings professional, with positions at Pratt and Lambert, Land N’ Sea Distributing and, most recently, Pettit Paint.

Zimmer has a “long history in the industry and a technical understanding of coatings that is a perfect fit for our growing team,” Rusty Morgan, Propspeed’s vice president sales and operations for the Americas, said in a statement.

“Growing up on a lake and always around boats, I developed a passion for working on boats,” Zimmer said. “In my teens, working in boatyards as a painter and fiberglass technician, I developed the hands-on experience that customers appreciate and respect in my marine sales career of over 25 years.”

Zimmer will be responsible for expanding Propspeed’s market penetration in the Mid-Atlantic region, the statement said.
