Hot tub and swim spa manufacturing brand Marquis has announced the appointment of Tom Kneeshaw as its new Director of International Sales.
With over 32 years of spa industry experience, including a long stint with Viking Spas, Tom brings a wealth of knowledge to Marquis’ international sales efforts. For the past 17 years, he has worked directly with international customers serving as Director of Sales and Marketing for Viking Spas.
The appointment of Tom, pictured. follows the retirement of Steve Hasenmueller who, after 30 years with the Oregon-based manufacturer, has bowed out with Marquis now seeking to build on its international reputation after being acquired by middle-market private investment firm Monomoy Capital Partners.
During the past decade Steve has been instrumental in assisting Marquis to increase its international presence with cutting-edge hot tub functionality, including the MicroSilk technology, and the success of WhatSpa? Best Buy Awarding-winning models from the Crown Collection and Vector 21 hot tub ranges. In addition, he has seen the company gain acclaim in the British swim spa market with its WhatSwimSpa? Best Buy Award-winning Aquatic Training Vessel (ATV) designs.
Marquis has also specifically designed HSG282 compliant models for the hot tub holiday market and has gained 2022 WhatSpa? Holiday Park Best Buy Award recognition for its Holiday Park Escape option, which comes in at 229 x 229 x 91cm and has a lounger seat within its design that can accommodate seven people.
