BELLINGHAM, Wash. - Blue Sea Systems has hired Lou Walton to serve in the recently created position of Southeast regional sales manager for its expanding line of marine electrical system products and accessories, the company reported in a statement yesterday.
Walton previously served as Southeast sales manager for The Janson Company, where he developed marine electronics business in a newly created region for the company. He will be responsible for increasing OEM marine manufacturer sales across the Southeast U.S., the company said.
