SEATTLE – Online boats for sale database YachtWorld.com has promoted Bob Summers from product development manager to business development manager and added Mason Britton as the Florida regional sales manager, it reported in a recent statement.
Summers began with YachtWorld.com in 1997 and built the BoatWizard user interface that offers brokers a way to add and update their listings on the site. In his new position, he will be in charge of the new development and growth of YachtWorld.com.
Britton has been a YachtWorld member broker since 1998 and a member of the yachting community since 1984. He was previously on the board of directors for the Yacht Brokers Association of America (YBAA), head of the New England regional YBAA membership committee and on the committee for Certification of Yacht Brokers. Britton brings knowledge of the new boat and brokerage communities with him and will help build relationships with brokers in Florida and the surrounding region.
“YachtWorld.com prides itself on its ability to adapt and grow along with the brokerage community,” said James Nolan, general manager of YachtWorld.com. “The addition of Mason Britton brings a face and a name associated with YachtWorld.com to brokers in Florida. He understands the concerns of our members and he will help YachtWorld.com continue to build member relations while helping to tailor the site to their needs.”
