Respected NZ marine distributor takes a position on Zhik’s Global Board
Simon Hull, Managing Director of Zhik’s New Zealand distributorship, is stepping up to a strategic position on the board of Zhik’s global business.
The move, effective from 28th September, is a change of focus for Simon to further grow and drive the New Zealand market as well as benefit the global business
As part of the change of structure, the New Zealand distributor operation will be re-incorporated into Zhik’s global business. For the consumer most operational aspects will remain the same, with the Zhik NZ Auckland showroom remaining open in Penrose and the NZ personnel remaining in place in the Auckland office.
Simon says: “I first became involved with the brand as an incredibly passionate user of Zhik clothing in my own sailing endeavours. My on-going increased investment and involvement with the brand is an exciting progression.”
Zhik Global CEO, Piet Poelmann, is excited about the opportunities it presents for the New Zealand business: “I thank the team in New Zealand for the enormous efforts in building Zhik to this great position. New Zealand is a nation of great sailors, hence Zhik feels at home there. With our continued global growth, I am thrilled the same team will be there to service our dealers and customers and help grow Zhik through many championships, the Olympics, and the Americas Cup.”
