Nautic Global Group CEO set to outline his vision


Nautic Global Group board chairman and CEO James R. “Jim” Malone will host a dealer and media meeting on Friday to share his new vision for the company.

The event, which will be attended by key Nautic dealers, will be moderated by Marine Retailers Association of the Americas president Matt Gruhn.

“These are exciting times in the marine industry and for Nautic Global Group,” Malone said in a statement. “With one of the strongest dealer networks, a perfectly positioned stable of brands and a team of motivated and experienced boatbuilders, we have a new vision and a renewed sense of optimism. I’m anxious to share this vision with our dealers and show them our plans for expansion, improved efficiencies and ultimately for increasing our collective profitability.”

A select group of dealers from around the country will be in attendance with Malone and Gruhn and will come prepared to ask questions, including those submitted by the broader Nautic dealer network.

Among the topics expected to be on the agenda are the company’s operational expansion plans, investments in quality control improvements, product development and a discussion about the leadership team in place and their collective vision and priorities.

Trade Only Today will cover the meeting and provide reports.
