Imtra announces personnel moves

Publish date:

Imtra said it has added five people to its support team.

The company hired Steve Owens, Myles Cunningham and Tom Ladue and promoted Jamie Simmons and Conrad Taylor.

“After 65 years in business, Imtra is still growing and evolving,” Imtra CEO Eric Braitmayer said in a statement. “Recognizing the need for additional resources to assist with new products and to help with the challenges that our customers face in today’s marine marketplace, we felt it was the right time to invest in new roles within the company. Hiring and promoting talented individuals such as Steve, Jamie, Conrad, Myles and Tom are what sets Imtra apart from other companies. We are always looking for new ways to help our customers find the best products for their clients’ boats.”

Owens is a marine industry veteran and has been named product support specialist. Born and educated in Northern Ireland, he immigrated to the U.S. in 2002. Most recently he worked with ABT-Trac’s service team, and prior to that he operated a Florida-based Side-Power thruster and stabilizer installation company, U.S. Thrusters.

Simmons is the Zipwake product manager. He has been with Imtra since 2014, working as a member of the customer service team. Taylor started at Imtra in 2016, also as a member of the customer service team. He’s a recent college graduate with a degree in communications.

Replacing Simmons and Taylor on the customer service crew are Cunningham and Ladue. Cunningham has been in the industry for his adult life and lives in Rhode Island. Ladue came to Imtra from Marine Warehouse in Miami after relocating to New England.
