Experienced marine industry salesman Darryl Whitmore has joined Lusty and Blundell Ltd as a key account manager.
Whitmore has worked as a top flight salesman in the industry for over 15 years, specialising in products as diverse as electronics, steering, chandlery and sails.
He says he has long wanted to work for Lusty and Blundell, New Zealand’s largest distributor of leading brand marine products and systems.
“L&B are the key player in the New Zealand market,” he says. “They have a great reputation, are really good to work for and have a great range of products.”
Whitmore says he is especially proud to be working with Raymarine products, which he describes as “the world’s best.”
Lusty and Blundell sales manager Mark Findlay says he and other senior L&B staff have long admired Whitmore and the way he interacts with key clients.
“Darryl builds a great rapport with his customers and clearly has the same values and attitudes as we do. He shows great commitment towards his customers and, as a result, receives great loyalty in return.”
Findlay says Whitmore’s extensive experience in the retail and OEM sectors is also a major advantage.
“It is no secret that the marine industry is experiencing a significant period of change at the moment,” he says. “To remain successful, we need to have a very clear idea of where we are going, how we are going to get there and who we need on board to achieve that.
“Darryl’s appointment as a key account manager is an integral part of that strategy. He significantly strengthens our sales team and strongly positions us for a very positive future.”
