Matija Klemenc appointed regional sales manager for Central Europe
French multihull builder the Catana has hired Matija Klemenc as the group’s new regional sales manager for Central European markets and charter clients. In his previous position, Klemence was responsible for marketing at two Slovenian boatbuilders –Greenline Yachts and Elan.
Catana is best-known for the Bali Catamarans brand.
“I believe Bali will have great benefits from Matija’s extensive knowledge of the charter market and is a great asset as we grow our dealer network stronger every year,” says Catana Group’s sales and marketing director, Boris Compagnon.
The Bali Catamarans brand grew tenfold in its first five years of existence – from 15 units sold in the first year to 150 units in 2018/19, Catana claims. Projected production for 2020 is currently at more than 200 with expanding production facilities in Canet en Roussillon. Around 75% of that is already sold.
Catana is also planning to launch three new models in 2020, with the first world premiere at boot Düsseldorf 2020, the second at La Grande Motte and the third at Cannes.
