Shearwater Research has announced the appointment of dive industry stalwart Simon Morris as Sales Manager.
Simon has worked in and around the diving industry since becoming a certified diver in 1973, for global leaders such as Scubapro and BARE in senior roles in Sales and Marketing and Product Development. He has had a concurrent career as a bronze sculptor, and is the creator of the mermaids The Emerald Princess in Powell River, BC, and Amphitrite at Sunset House in Grand Cayman, and The Guardian of the Reef at Divetech, also in Grand Cayman.
Simon commented: “I am very pleased to be joining the Shearwater team. It is a very exciting time to have the opportunity to be part of the global growth of a company with such well respected products and a reputation for integrity and customer service.”
Gabriel Pineda, Director of Sales and Marketing for Shearwater, commented: “The process to select our next Sales Manager was done carefully and selectively. It is of extreme importance for us to bring individuals that will not only be compatible with the Shearwater culture, but that will be able to embody and propagate the qualities that have made our organization so successful. We are looking forward to working with Simon further strengthening the strong bonds that we have with the scuba community.”
