Ronstan, the Australian based global player in Sailboat Hardware and Architectural markets, is making a number of changes to top level management to set the company up for the next stage of its growth.

A full list of changes at Board level is attached with the most significant one being the

promotion of Scot West who will take over from long time Managing Director, Alistair Murray.

Alistair is stepping down after 19 years in the role and will take over as Ronstan’s Chairman.

He was quoted as saying “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. Scot will do a great job.”

Scot 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 he will be based at the Rhode Island, USA office. Scot commented “I am thrilled to take over as Managing Director at Ronstan. 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 in Australia, Denmark and Indonesia and a global network of distributors, enjoying a high profile in the sailing and architectural markets in 45 countries world wide.
