“We are excited to have an individual of Tom’s caliber leading our HCYC team,” Hatteras Cabo Yachts president and CEO John Ward said in a statement. “Tom brings a wealth of industry knowledge, great sales and marketing skills and a business acumen that will support our yacht center strategy.”

Before he was at HMY, Sanders worked for several brands, including Christensen Yachts and Bertram. His career started at Hatteras in 1981.
