Changes at the Top of Ronstan
Published on February 1st, 2016
Ronstan, the Australian based supplier in Sailboat Hardware and Architectural markets, has announced a number of changes to top level management, the most significant one being the promotion of Scot West who will take over from long time Managing Director, Alistair Murray.
Murray is stepping down after 19 years in the role and will take over as Ronstan’s Chairman. “I have spent a long time developing a magnificent team at Ronstan and I am thrilled to have the talent to choose from at all levels to take the company on to even greater success,” remarks Murray. “Scot will do a great job.”
West has been in charge of Ronstan’s USA operation for 11 years during which time Ronstan has grown into a market leader. Reflecting Ronstan’s further internationalisation and enormous potential in the northern hemisphere, West will remain based at the Rhode Island, USA office.
“I am thrilled to take over as Managing Director at Ronstan,” West reports. “Alistair has been a dynamic leader here for a long time and as a result we have had some great success. Now I am looking forward to getting some fresh eyes on our biggest challenges and opportunities. More than anything, I have worked with the other senior managers at Ronstan for over 10 years and they give me the confidence to know we can and will do great things at Ronstan.”
Ronstan is headquartered in Melbourne, Australia and is owned by its management team. The company has manufacturing facilities in Australia, Denmark and Indonesia and a global network of distributors, active in sailing and architectural markets in 45 countries world wide.
