Maryland-based Kadey-Krogen Yachts has hired Tucker West as the company’s new vice president of sales. For the past nine years, West led the North American sales and dealers network for Grand Banks Yachts. He will also contribute to product development and sales marketing.

“I am confident that my knowledge of the customer base will help propel Kadey-Krogen Yachts forward,” he said. “We have several new products on the drawing the board, and it is an exciting time to join the company.”

West has assumed an equity position in the company by purchasing John Gear’s interest in Kadey-Krogen Yachts, thereby creating a new team of principals. In addition to West overseeing sales, Larry Polster will supervise marketing, public relations, finance and administration, and Tom Button will direct yacht construction, new product development, commissioning and post-delivery customer care. John Gear will continue with Kadey-Krogen Yachts as the company’s Florida yacht broker of record.
