In her new role, Kristy will manage a number of responsibilities. These include expanding the C-Tow captain’s fleet in Ontario, The Maritimes, and across Canada, representing the company at boat shows and industry events. In addition, she will be managing social media channels and monthly e-newsletters.   

Kristy’s role extends to assisting with a number of C-Tow’s ongoing initiatives. These entail raising environmental awareness of Canada’s waterways through its Ripple Program, further serving its Member Discount Program and managing the online C-Tow store.

In her position, Kristy networked with dealers and retail businesses, which contributed to increased brand awareness and enhanced distribution.

“Much of my previous experience in promotions and marketing aligns perfectly with C-Tow’s initiatives for recreational boaters and its various programs, so it was a natural move for me to accept this role,” said Kristy. “Managing more marketing and promotion projects are responsibilities I am keen about pursuing and I am very excited to be part of the C-Tow team.”
