Independent marine sales representatives GSW and Associates of Alpharetta, Georgia, and JB Dunn Company of Bradenton, Florida, have merged into one agency. 

 

They will operate as GSW and Associates, with nine salespeople covering 12 Southeastern and Gulf area states.


GSW and Associates celebrates its 30th anniversary this year.  In addition to its strong sales relationships with boatbuilders, distributors, retailers and dealers, the company offers research, marketing and consulting services.  Customized solutions for its clients include market research, product launches, show support and social media.
