A lifelong boater since he was a kid running the family Bell Buoy runabout with a smoke belching 75 Hp Evinrude. Kurt is always enthusiastic about having fun on the water, whether it's fishing, scuba diving, water sports, or just plain cruising. He brings that same energy and enthusiasm to the business side of the marine industry, with extensive personal experience running everything on the water from inflatables to whitewater jet boats and offshore cruising.
Thirty plus years of sales and marketing experience, with twenty of those as a manufacturers representative for Marine Markets West, and a degree in finance from the University of Colorado complement his business experience.
Kurt travels the NW territory including British Columbia and Alaska calling on OEMs and distributors throughout the region, sometimes using his pilot's license to cover such a large geographic area. As owner of Marine Markets West, national accounts fall under his responsibility. Kurt resides just outside of Seattle, WA with his wife Mary and their furry, four legged children.
Bob has over 30 years of experience working in the Marine and Sporting goods industry. He joined a manufactures representative company in Seattle in 1984 after spending 7 years working for Eli Lilly and Co. Bob formed his own sales agency: the Bob Stoick Co. in 1990 and joined the Marine Markets West team in 2005. In addition to his strong sales background, he holds a bachelor’s degree in marketing and finance from Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Oregon.
A road junky at heart who racks up thousands of road and frequent flier miles working with dealers, distributors, OEMS and mass retailers from Washington to Southern California and the rocky mountain region. Engine service and repair dealers continue to be a strong focus of Bob’s sales efforts. The MMW agency has developed strong relationships with the distributors who service this market segment. Customers depend on the engine accessory expertise that Bob brings to the field.
Formally from Seattle he moved to Arizona 5 years ago to get back in the sun and uses this excellent air hub to easily reach places in California and the growing inland rocky mountain region markets.
Evelyn has over 20 years working for Marine Markets West while taking care of everything from office administration to customer service and providing support for Kurt and Bob while they are on the road.
