WYOMING, Minn. - Pontoon Manufacturer Premier Marine announced that it has appointed Rick Jones of Houston, Texas, as the company's Regional Sales Manager for the South, including Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas.

"We're so pleased to
welcome Rick to the Premier family," said Bob Menne, Premier president, in a press release. "His broad knowledge of the marine industry will make him a great addition to our team."

Jones has worked for several boat manufacturers including Chris-Craft and Cobalt Boats, and owned the dealership Dockside Marine in Lake Conroe, Texas. Premier National sales Manager Bruce Hawkins said he believes Jones' experience as a marine dealer will be a benefit to other Premier dealers.

"Rick brings experience on both the manufacturing and dealer sides of the industry," said Hawkins in a press release. "It's a great asset to our dealers to work with someone who's been a dealer himself."
