“We are excited about these positive changes for our company,” Zodiac Nautic North America president Gary Durnan said in a statement. ”Matthew and Katie’s passion for our business and how we go about doing it on a daily basis further adds to our overall mission of providing the best product and experience we can for our customers and our dealers alike. Zodiac Nautic North America plans to continue to meet the ever growing demand for RIB products produced in the USA with our solid staff, and these two are no exception.”
