Chris-Craft said it has hired Ryan Mckeone as a regional sales associate.

Mckeone will be responsible for dealer sales and service in 21 Southern and Western states.

The company said Mckeone is a recent graduate of the Florida Institute of Technology with a bachelor’s degree in business administration and marketing.

He comes to Chris-Craft with retail sales experience in the industry — most recently with Boater’s Exchange, a dealership in Rockledge, Fla.

He also was a delivery captain and attended shows as a factory representative for Everglades Boats.

“We welcome Ryan to Chris-Craft. We are excited to have his expert boating experience, youthful enthusiasm and energetic work ethic,” Gavan Hunt, the company’s vice president of sales, said in a statement. “We look forward to many successful years growing with Ryan as we assist the continued growth of our dealer network,”
