Propspeed appoints mid-Atlantic regional sales manager

Propspeed (foul-release coatings) has hired Darron Zimmer as new Mid-Atlantic regional sales manager and technical support. Zimmer will be responsible for servicing existing customers and expanding market penetration in the region.

Zimmer joins Propspeed with extensive coatings experience. He began his career with Pratt & Lambert specialising in marine and aviation coatings. From there, Zimmer moved to Land N’ Sea Distributing, focusing on wholesale sales of marine products. His most recent position was as the mid-Atlantic sales manager for Pettit Paint.

“Growing up on a lake and always around boats, I developed a passion for working on boats,” says Zimmer. “In my teens working in boatyards as a painter and fiberglass technician, I developed the hands-on experience that customers appreciate and respect in my marine sales career of over 25 years to date.”

The news follows Propspeed’s recent expansion of its European team.

“Darron has a long history in the industry and a technical understanding of coatings that is a perfect fit for our growing team,” says Rusty Morgan, vice president sales and operations in the Americas. “Our customers count on our experience to ensure they get the right product for their needs and that it is installed properly for the best performance.

“We are confident in his depth of knowledge and that he will be a fantastic addition to the Propspeed team.”
