Italian manufacturer Quick announces personnel moves

Quick S.p.A. hired John Miller to lead the technical department and Stephen Davis as a field technical adviser at Quick USA.

Quick S.p.A., which makes boating and yachting accessories, hired John Miller to lead the technical department and Stephen Davis as a field technical adviser at Quick USA.

Miller will train and support dealers, distributors and manufacturers that install Quick nautical equipment, including its new line of anti-roll gyrostabilizers. He will be based at the company’s Maryland headquarters.

Before he joined Quick, Miller worked in Annapolis as president of John James Technical Marine. He also worked at Vetus Boat Equipment as its technical support manager and at Port Annapolis Marina as project manager.

As a field technical advisor, Davis will assist with aftermarket sales at Quick, with a primary focus on anti-roll gyrostabilizers. Davis also will be based at Quick’s headquarters, but will spend the majority of his time in the field.

He has more than 20 years of experience in the marine industry, having worked as a manufacturer’s representative and technical advisor for a range of companies.

“John’s and Steve’s wealth of experience and technical knowledge will be great assets to Quick USA,” managing director Filippo Bovio said in a statement. “We are constantly introducing new products that demand an ever-growing interaction with OEMs and consumers alike. With these additions to our already experienced team we are in a great position to continue to expand our presence in the U.S.”

Quick’s corporate headquarters is in Ravenna, Italy, and the company has operations in more than 60 countries. Quick USA opened in 2006.
