Sak Marine, the parent company of Caravelle Powerboats, Interceptor Performance Boats, Key Largo Sportfishing Boats, Clearwater Sportfishing Boats, Cape-Craft Sportfishing Boats and Sea Hawk Offshore Fishing Boats, appointed Nick Miller a managing partner and vice president.

Miller will have an ownership position with Sak Marine, as well as oversee sales and marketing for all of the company’s brands. He also will contribute to new product offerings and future acquisitions. Miller will be responsible for helping the current dealer networks grow their businesses at retail by providing support tools and implementing nationwide marketing initiatives.

He also will manage the current factory representatives and assist them in acquiring new dealers in the United States and internationally.

“We were looking for the right person that would fit in with our group and take our vision of growth and make it happen. I spent quite a bit of time with Nick, and not only is he an intelligent businessman with great, forward-thinking ideas, he started working on the production floor of a boat company when he was a kid,” Sak Marine president Eugene Sak said in a statement.

“He worked his way up within this industry, and that says quite a bit about a person,” he added. “We are happy to have him as part of our team and as one of the owners of our company.”

Miller began working for Pro-Line Boats in 1986. When Pro-Line purchased Donzi and Phoenix he became head of marketing, eventually becoming vice president. Until 2003 Miller worked in nearly every position within those boat companies.

Since that time, he has consulted with boatbuilders and hundreds of dealers via one-on-one training and group workshops.

Two longtime Thetford Corp. employees, Kevin Phillips and Doug Tharp, were recently promoted, the company announced.

Phillips was elevated to executive vice president of North America. He previously served as vice president of sales and marketing, North America, since joining Thetford in 2005. Prior to joining Thetford, Phillips worked with Guardian Automotive as business unit director.

He also previously worked as director of business development and director of North American sales at GKN Sinter Metals, and as customer director and global platform leader at Delphi Automotive.

“Kevin’s leadership, experience and knowledge of the RV market make him the ideal candidate to grow Thetford in the future,” CEO Stephane Cordeille said in a statement.

Tharp was promoted to senior director of finance for North America. He joined Norcold Inc. as a division accountant in 1990 and was promoted to accounting manager in 1993. He was promoted to corporate controller at Thetford, Norcold’s parent company, in 2003.
