Paul MacDonald is a senior member of the Southern Spars team and a veteran of the Whitbread Round the World Race, the precursor to the Volvo Ocean Race. He has been involved in the mast and rigging business for over 25 years, founding Marten Spars, before merging that business with the Southern Spars team eight years ago.
Paul said, “A big part of our markets are in Europe and the USA. I am really excited about being closer to both these places. I also will be extending some technical support and training to the rest of our sales team in the area.”
By moving north, Paul will be closer to many of Southern Spars clients, and will, according to Southern Spars, improve the service that the company offers to its many European based customers. As a very senior member of staff, the idea is that Paul will be on hand to meet with clients at short notice and be contactable in the same time zone.
