Cruisers Yachts Hires New Regional Sales Manager

OCONTO, Wis. (January 16, 2008) - Cruisers Yachts, Wisconsin’s premier manufacturer of luxury yachts, proudly announced today that Phil Stoegerer has been named regional sales manager for the company for the region west of the Mississippi.  Stoegerer’s direct responsibilities for the Cruisers Yachts brand will include assisting dealers in all facets of sales service including boat shows.

Prior to being appointed to regional sales manager at Cruisers Yachts, Stoegerer held the position of international sales manager at CABO Yachts.  He also held positions at Donzi Marine in Sarasota, FL and at Carver Yacht Group in Pulaski, WI.  However, Stoegerer’s hands-on retail experience in the yachting industry came while working on the “front-line” at Sima Marine as a yacht salesman.

“We are very excited to have Phil on the Cruisers Yachts team as he brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table,” said Jeff Brunson, vp sales and marketing, KCS International, Inc. “As our company continues to grow within the industry Phil’s leadership will be a tremendous asset to our company.”

As a Michigan native, Stoegerer comes from a family with a strong history in the automotive industry which has helped to feed his interest in manufacturing.  Stoegerer attended Ferris State University of Big Rapids, Michigan where he received a bachelor’s degree in marketing and sales.

Headquartered in Oconto, Wis., Cruisers Yachts is part of KCS International, Inc., which includes sister company Rampage Sport Fishing Yachts.
