Seldén Mast has made four new appointments to its sales team.
James Harley takes on the role of account manager responsible for the UK aftermarket.
Joining Seldén with seven years’ marine industry experience, James has previously worked as an account manager and an area sales manager in the sector.
James has previously worked with both distributors and manufacturers in the marine leisure market, and his customer relationships and product knowledge make him ideally suited to his new position.
“I’m very pleased to be working with Seldén Mast, such a well-known and respected brand in the industry,” said James.
“The welcome I have received from the team has been fantastic and I’m excited to be joining them to work with existing and new customers within the UK aftermarket to help the company grow and succeed.”
With 20 years sales experience in the electronics manufacturing sector, Nigel Palmer joins Seldén as an account manager with focus on OEM sales.
Returning to the marine industry where he started his career building aluminium masts before moving into technical sales, Nigel is responsible for Seldén’s OEM customers, including yacht brands Oyster Yachts and Swan.
“Selden Mast is the global leader in mast design and manufacture for a vast range of boats which makes this position hugely interesting and also extremely challenging as the level of expectation for customer service is very high,” said Nigel.
“I feel very lucky to be able to use my many years of experience in technical sales in a sport that I am passionate about.”
Focusing on the dinghy side of the business, Martin Lown joins Seldén’s sales team as dinghy export account manager.
Sailing from an early age before moving into dinghy racing and instruction, Martin has been working in the marine industry since 2010, including running an RYA training centre in Dubai and five years as the general manager of a yacht training school in the UK.
In his new role, Martin will be responsible for sales, logistics and customer service for Seldén’s dinghy customers worldwide.
“I am truly delighted to join a world-renowned sailing brand combining my passion and career,” says Martin. “I look forward to working with, and growing, my accounts and being part of the Seldén team.”
Complementing the team and providing administrative support is new sales coordinator Klevisa Gjonaj.
With almost a decade of marine industry experience, primarily from customer facing roles within the yacht charter market, Klevisa is responsible for fielding customer service enquiries and processing sales orders.
“I am delighted and thrilled to be joining Seldén, a world-leading company with a forward-thinking approach,” says Klevisa.
“I eagerly anticipate contributing to the team’s progress and growth as we work together to achieve even greater success.”
