Digital Yacht America appoint new Sales Representative
Award-winning Digital Yacht is very pleased to announce Bruce Hackett as our new sales representative for the Mid Atlantic States.
Bruce is a boat-owner himself with first-hand experience and extensive knowledge of marine electronics and navigation spanning over 30 years. He is highly regarded and represents some of the largest and most innovative manufacturers and has now added Digital Yacht to his repertoire. He works specifically with marine retailers, distributors, commercial electronic dealers and the OEM market.
“It is with great pleasure that I can confirm Bruce will be joining the Digital Yacht team. I know he will be a real asset and play an integral part in expanding the growth of Digital Yacht in America,” commented CEO, Nick Heyes.
“This is a very exciting phase for Digital Yacht, and with a couple of prestigious awards to its name it’s the perfect time to represent them and help increase awareness and sales. The brand has huge potential, so I’m really thrilled to be involved,” added Bruce Hackett.
With Bruce on board Digital Yacht has already secured two new technical dealers, Marine Technical Services and Mid Shore Electronics in Maryland, which will help provide installation and service support across this territory. After winning the 2011 NMEA award for BOATraNET, Digital Yacht is keen to build on its reputation for pioneering products, and is in the process of assigning more distributors in key areas across America.
