"I'm excited to be joining a company that supplies great British designed and manufactured parts to everyone from weekend boaters through to Olympic sailors. Having used Allen products on my own boats and professionally at past jobs, I already knew Allen made great products.

And I am really looking forward to working with Liz and such a knowledgeable team who are passionate about sailing and boats." commented Jon Sturmer.
