Martin Rose -Sales Executive

Riviera Sydney is very pleased to announce the return of one of its most experienced sales executives – Martin Rose.

Martin was a stalwart of Riviera in Sydney for over ten years and has a total of 20 years of sales experience in the marine industry.

Martin says ‘I decided to spread my wings a few years ago and moved into the RV industry, a product that shares quite a synergy with boating, in terms of technologies and culture. Saltwater runs deep in my veins however and I am thrilled to be able to return to Riviera Sydney. My time away has given me a new perspective and a fresh approach and I am very excited to get back on board and bring a renewed enthusiasm and increased range of skills to the position. My work ethic and pride in my integrity remain as strong as ever.

I look forward to catching up with previous clients and meeting new ones and working with them to ensure they select the right boat and receive the best service. My goal is to make certain their time on the water with their friends and family is the best it can be.’
