In the sporting goods and diving industry, he’s done it all: manufacturing, wholesaling, retailing & eCommerce. He owned/managed dive shops, dive resorts, and charter boats in Canada and USA. He’s been a Course Director and Instructor Trainer with numerous dive training agencies as well as an Examiner for DAN and EFR. And he’s been on the Board of Directors of DEMA, the Diving Equipment & Marketing Administration.
Otherwise, he brings to the scuba diving industry valuable experience from other industries, including radio & TV broadcasting, railroads and transportation, marketing agencies, and education. Lately, he’s been focused on Blue Ocean Strategy which is “the simultaneous pursuit of differentiation and low cost, to open up a new market space and create new demand. It is about creating and capturing uncontested market space, thereby making the competition irrelevant. It is based on the view that market boundaries and industry structure are not a given and can be reconstructed by the actions and beliefs of industry players.” (Source: Blue Ocean).
He also brings experience in new product development as an Industrial Engineer. He carries an MBA in marketing. And he’s been an advisor to CEOs and Private Equity firms.
