“It is exciting to be here at Marlow Ropes. At the time of writing, I’ve been here five days and have already been impressed with the level of professionalism and skill throughout the place – there is a lot for me to get up to speed with, but the team have been fantastic.  As a passionate dinghy and keelboat sailor in my spare time, I’m looking forward to working with Megan and the wider team at Marlow, finding solutions for the water sports community here in the UK.”

The arrival of Rob comes after the announcement at the end of last year that the current UK Sales Manager David Mossman has moved over to pick up the Leisure Marine European Distribution business. 

Joining Marlow in February means all systems go for the Leisure Marine team with the RYA Dinghy offering a great opportunity for Rob to meet with many of our UK customers and end users.  Please come by stand J34 at the Dinghy Show to say hello.
