Marquis Yachts Appoints Erik Nelson VP of Sales/Marketing


Erik Nelson has been appointed Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Marquis Yachts.

Nelson will oversee the development and implementation of Marquis' marketing strategies for both Carver Yachts and Marquis Yachts.

“Erik's knowledge of the marine industry and his continued commitment to our worldwide dealers made his promotion the logical choice,” says Robert VanGrunsven, President of Marquis Yachts. “You cannot have a premium brand without premium people managing it.”

Nelson first joined the company in 2006 as Regional Manager. However, he has also served as National Sales Manager and most recently as Director of Sales and Service since 2008.

Prior to his tenure at Marquis and Carver, Nelson held senior management and sales management positions with companies in the home construction and furnishing industries.
