RS Sailing announce changes to management structure
by Gemma Frohlich on 1 Dec 2012
RS Sailing have announced changes to their management structure due to expansion into new international markets. Jon Partridge, previously Operations Director, has been appointed as the new UK and European Sales Director for RS Sailing.
This move should ensure that the already successful UK market will benefit from more focused attention whilst providing their European Dealers with increased support as these markets continue to flourish. Jon’s involvement with the RS Feva and RS 500 classes has been pivotal to their success internationally.
Riki Hooker will become International Sales Director focusing on expanding emerging markets in the rest of the world. Having helped build our international dealer network and more recently, spear-heading RS Sailing's entry into North America, Riki will continue to build our presence on that continent whilst also concentrating on developing RS success in the Middle East, Asia, Africa and Australasia.
Both Riki and Jon are actively looking to expand their dealer networks across the world following increased success in the past few years.
