Barrett joins Imtra today as recreational Pacific Northwest account representative. Most recently with West Marine Pro, Barrett has been working the Pacific Northwest marine market for more than 25 years. Imtra said he brings a deep technical knowledge and great connections in the industry.

His territory will include Washington, Oregon, British Columbia and Idaho.

MacDonald is already working at Imtra in the newly created position of commercial Pacific Northwest account representative. MacDonald has worked in the territory since 2014 and will support commercial and industrial customers from the San Francisco Bay Area in northern California to Alaska and inland to the Rocky Mountains.

Imtra said he will focus on supporting the company’s commercial marine, fisheries and other industrial market clients.

“After 35 years with the company, Jerry Truax has retired from Imtra,” Eric Braitmeyer, the company’s CEO, said in a statement. “He has been a tremendous technical resource, a valued advocate for his customers, a dedicated representative for Imtra and just a great person. With such big shoes to fill, we have decided to do so with two people. These appointments will allow us to provide a dedicated focus on recreational marine and our growing commercial customer base.”
