Chris Carthew Business Development Manager, Marine Tech Industries Bob Carter
Marine Tech Industries (MTI) MD Brett Vorhauer has announced the appointment of Chris Carthew to the newly created position of Business Development Manager of the growing Melbourne (Australia) based company.

The company produces a full line of pedestal systems which includes the BridgeMaster stainless steel line, ProWave aluminium pedestals and the Hercules table pedestals.

Over the past twelve months, MTI has been focussed upon growth both in the Australian domestic market and the international or export markets.

'We have a product range that meets world’s best practice,' said Brett Vorhauer.

'To take our development further we have introduced Chris to the MTI organisation in the capacity of a Business Development Manager. Chris has impeccable business credentials and he is an exceptional addition to our team.'

Chris was born in Melbourne but grew up in regional Victoria. After gaining trade qualifications he completed a degree as a mature age student to graduate as a Bachelor of Management / Marketing.

Through his previous employment in the automotive industry as a component supplier to Kenworth, Brett Vorhauer and Chris crossed paths.

After a decade as a BDM and then GM in regional Victoria, Chris decided it was time for a change and moved to Melbourne to take up the position of BDM at MTI.

'I had no hesitation in joining Brett at MTI,' Chris commented. 'His commitment to quality and customer service beggars belief. Joining MTI and bringing automotive industry standards to the marine industry represents a great opportunity for us.'

Upon joining MTI, Chris brings a renewed focus to the strengths of the product range and the brand.

'Here is a company that is truly leading the market. The products in the MTI range are quality personified. The superior quality is embodied in the design, the manufacturing and the attention to detail in the finish.'

'In performance the MTI brand has no peer. These seating pedestals are superior in both stability and durability. This is a company with a product and determination to literally take on the world and succeed.'

'But it doesn’t occur overnight; nor does it occur without effort. My role as BDM is to identify and develop markets. It is a wonderful opportunity.'

Chris has a well round background in boating. He is currently crewing on a 33’ monohull racing yacht, and in the past has been an avid fisherman, water skier and scuba diver. He also holds a private pilots licence.

Marine Tech Industries is a wholly Australian owned company, based in Melbourne, Australia. MTI manufactures quality seat and table pedestals and seating systems for the marine industry throughout the world.
