Pettit Marine Paint named Tony Palabrica as a technical sales representative, making him responsible for bolstering customer-retention efforts and developing new relationships in the Midwest.

Palabrica joined Pettit in September. He previously worked for nine years as a store manager for a major marine parts retailer and spent 16 years in technical coatings sales.

He also was involved with megayacht builds and was an instructor on the proper application of marine paint for professional applicators at a training center in Cocoa Beach, Fla.

“Tony has a vast array of capabilities and possesses the attention to detail and superior service experience that our customers have come to expect from Pettit Paint,” Pettit Marine Paint sales and marketing vice president Don Zabransky said in a statement. “We are supremely confident that he will mesh well with the team and be of great service to our Midwest clients. We are excited to have him on board.”
