Surf Technicians LLC welcomed Mark Mertens to the team to represent the state of Florida. Mertens will be the lead sales rep for all Surf and Stand Up Paddle product lines under the Surftech and NSP brands.
“Selling Surf and Stand up Paddleboards is quite different than apparel, footwear or accessories,” said Ryan Guay, Surftech VP of sales. “So it can be really challenging to find reps that have deep experience, everyone wants to be a surfboard rep until they see a full truck load of samples getting dropped off in their front yard. Mark understands it, already knows our product, and will help us service all of our retailers for all of our brands.”
Added Merten: “I am excited to be involved with such a progressive company. Their technology and constructions are the best available and the choice of brands they offer is by far the most extensive anywhere in the board building industry. Surf Technicians offers a true one stop shop for brands, price range and constructions and I love that. I can’t wait to hit the road and show everyone all the new product”
Former Florida Rep and Surftech/Bark Team Rider AJ DeFilippis remains with the team and will be focusing his efforts growing business in the Caribbean and Puerto Rico.
