News - Hyundai Strengthens Marine Presence
Australian power-equipment supplier Allpower Marine has appointed Martin Gunn as Australian Business Development Manager for its Hyundai SeasAll marine diesel engine range.
“I’m thrilled to have joined the Allpower Marine team when Hyundai SeasAll products are experiencing rapid growth globally,” said Sydney-based Gunn, who, we’re told, has more 25 years’ experience in the marine industry.
“You only have to look at the success that the brand has had with the automotive side of things to realise what they’re capable of achieving now in the marine market. The quality and performance of the product is certainly world class,” he said.
Welcoming Gunn aboard, Allpower Marine CEO Ken Collier said: “His background and knowledge of the market was going to be invaluable for the growth of Hyundai SeasAll in Australia.
“Martin has a wealth of experience and is well respected within the industry, he makes a very welcome addition to our growing marine division here in Australia,” said Collier.
Gunn will work alongside current New Zealand Business Development Manager Mark Harrison, who will continue to oversee the NZ market and the Allpower Marine brand throughout Australasia.
Gunn’s appointment coincides with the further strengthening of the brand’s presence in Australia with more dealer appointments also announced. The new appointments include Careel Bay Marina in Avalon, NSW and Seapower Marine in Runaway Bay, Qld.
“Gordon ‘Bluey’ Woolcott from Careel Bay Marina and Scott Evered from Seapower Marine will further strengthen Allpower Marine’s presence and reinforces that have really strong product through Hyundai SeasAll,” said Collier.
The two newly appointed dealerships join existing Hyundai SeasAll stocking dealer Sealink Marine in Melbourne, which was appointed earlier this year.
The Hyundai SeasAll range has recently expanded with two new engines in 125hp and 420hp configurations, joining the 150hp and 250hp models already available.
