National sales manager Mike Gunning named Bob Leichtman as the authorized dealer for Electric Yacht in Annapolis, which will cover the Mid-Atlantic market from New York to North Carolina.

Leichtman will be responsible for the territory between New York City and Maryland, Erick Schultz will cover Washington, D.C., and Mark Chevalier will cover Virginia to North Carolina.
