John MathesonCanadian Yachting (CY) Media is pleased to announce their newest Team Member, John Matheson to the position of Account Executive. John began his new role with CY Media earlier this month.

John made his first connection to boating at a young age at his family cottage and it quickly became a passion. John notes: “My connection with Boating began at a family cottage that my parents bought the year I was born. We lived in Sudbury, but spent every weekend, every summer and every excusable moment at the cottage, as my mother’s extensive family all lived and cottaged in the area. Dad bought us a 16’ Centre-Console with a 60HP and we drove it back to Midland in what became horrendous conditions. It didn’t kill us, but we came close. The thrill of independence and adventure this little boat offered was all it took to cement my love for boating and it has been a passion ever since.”

John brings to this position a diverse background with a long-standing career in the recreational boating industry. His experience in Sales, Marketing and Service Management with Central Marine, Midland and Marketing Coordinating have provided John with an intimate knowledge of the boating landscape. John has a Master of Arts in Organizational Communication from the University of Ottawa and Bachelor of Arts in Political Studies, Law & Public Policy.

In his new role, John looks forward to creating new industry relationships and further strengthening CY Media’s brands.

Kerrwil Vice-President, Jill Snider notes that “John shows exemplary sales, marketing, organization and industry knowledge and we are very excited to have him join our Team”.

Based in Midland, ON, Canadian Yachting Media is a subsidiary of Kerrwil Publications Limited. The company’s core brands are Canadian Yachting Magazine, Boating Industry Canada and PORTS Cruising Guides. CY Media also publishes the Boating Ontario Directory and the Toronto and Vancouver International Boat Show Guides.

James Neophytou joins North South Nautical Group

James NeophytouJames was first introduced into boating in 1980, in the town of Port Severn. Almost immediately he developed a passion for boating and purchased his first boat, a 15’ Kodiak with a 50hp Johnson.

It wasn’t long before James got the ‘itch’ to move to a bigger boat. He and his family spent several years cruising the beautiful waters of Georgian Bay in their 23 Reinell. Unfortunately, a busy work schedule forced James to take a break from boat ownership. He knew though, that one day he’d return.
