Bryant Boats names former dealer as Midwest sales manager

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.”
