North Sails have announced Philippe Touet as the new General Manager of North Sails France. Previously the Commercial Director of Incidence Sails, Touet is now responsible for sales management and operations of the North Sails business in France.

In this senior management position, Touet will work alongside Gautier Sergent, who will provide strategic leadership in his expanded role as a Director of France. Philippe will join North Sails from June 17th, 2019.

"North Sails is the industry and technology leader with their constant innovation and development", Touet commented. "North Sails understands their clients' needs, whether they be Grand Prix racers, Superyacht owners, cruisers or One Design enthusiasts. I am looking forward to working with Gautier and the entire North Sails team to continue the success the brand saw under the direction of Greg Evrard."

"Philippe's combined sailing and management experience make him an ideal fit for our business and company culture," says Sergent. "His charismatic personality, as well as his deep knowledge of the industry, convinced us that he was the best candidate to help take North Sails France forward. He is well respected within the industry, and we're fortunate to have him join North Sails."

Touet joins a strong management team based at the North Sails manufacturing and sales site in Vannes, France. Since 2004, this location is a sales and service resource for local sailors and an innovation hub for sailing's most exciting offshore projects including the Ultim, IMOCA, and Figaro 3 classes.
