Bryant Boats has added industry veteran John “Johnny” Crowe as its Midwest sales manager.

“We are thrilled to have Johnny on our team, having built a great relationship with him over the years at WaterSports Central, one of Bryant’s top dealers,” Bryant Boats president John Dorton said in a statement. “Johnny will focus on building the Midwest distribution network and assist with new-product development as he brings nearly three decades of tow-boat experience, which is key to our current momentum with the Bryant Surf Series.”

Crowe spent 18 years as co-owner and president of WaterSports Central in Atlanta. Before that, he worked for 10 years as a manufacturing representative, product manager and customer service manager for Correct Craft and Ski Nautique.

“For me, it’s like going full circle, coming back to the manufacturer side and working for a Correct Craft company, doing what I love to do,” Crowe said. “My goal is to bring extra value to our Midwest dealers with my years of experience managing and co-owning a top-performing marine dealership.”
