Seakeeper adds to sales team


Seakeeper recently appointed three new regional sales managers.

Mark Taiclet and Grant Haugen will oversee the Southeast and West Coast, respectively. Tanja Lutz will handle sales in Northern Europe. All will focus on commercial and leisure markets.

Taiclet spent more than 20 years at Sea Ray in sales, training and customer relations management roles. Prior to joining Seakeeper, he managed OEM, trade and retail sales for Sea Vision.

Haugen’s industry experience includes roles at West Coast dealerships and serving as military division director at Wesmar. Lutz, based in Hamburg, Germany, comes to her new position with a background in brokerage, sales, warranty and service. Lutz most recently worked for Seakeeper distributor Global Marine, where she helped with refit projects.

“Seakeeper continues to support its world-leading gyros with superior global sales and service,” Seakeeper global sales director Andrew Semprevivo said in a statement. “We're pleased to add three such highly-qualified individuals to our team to help meet market demand.”
