Australian Ocean Performance brand Vaikobi, continues its expansion into the sailing market with the recent appointment of Australian Marine industry stalwart, Paul Schulz as their Global Sales Manager.

Paul comes to Vaikobi after owning and operating the Gill Marine distributorship in Australia for the past fifteen years and is a fantastic addition to the Vaikobi team at what is an exciting time for the brand.

Vaikobi's Pat Langley commented "We are super excited to have someone of Paul's calibre join our team and in particular head up global sales for our growing brand. Paul needs no introduction inside the Australian Marine industry and brings a vast amount of experience which will be invaluable for the Global Vaikobi business moving forward".

Paul Schulz commented, "It's great to be on board with the Vaikobi Team. Having known Pat for many years through the marine industry, I've watched the rapid growth of Vaikobi with huge interest and am now really pleased to be able to join the team on their journey."

"Vaikobi have done an awesome job in building a fantastic brand with a great range of products, so the opportunity for me to get on board with a home grown brand was just to hard to resist. I'm excited to make a strong contribution to keep Vaikobi expanding both here and overseas."

Outside of work, Paul has been a two time Australian 18 foot skiff champion and has also enjoyed a long ocean racing career including competing in the 2018 Melbourne- Osaka Yacht Race.
