Trawl door manufacturer, Morgère, has appointed Amaury Hervé as sales manager in a move to develop new business in both the French and international markets.

Amaury brings tremendous experience to Morgère, having trained at the Maritime School in Paimpol, after which he became a fisherman and then mechanic with the CMA-CGM company. Most recently he was an officer-mechanic with the same company, following training at the Ecole Nationale Supérieur Maritime in Saint-Malo, Brittany.

In his new sales role, Amaury will also participate in sea trials to aid the launch of new products developed by Morgère, as well as help develop new fishing techniques.

Amaury said: “After some years as a mechanic on a commercial boat, I am delighted to return to fishing, which is my first passion. I am looking forward to working with the team at Morgère and utilising my maritime knowledge. In particular, I am excited at the opportunity to work closely with both existing and new customers.”

Michel Dagorn, managing director at Morgère, said: “Amaury’s knowledge and experience will benefit our customers in many different ways and will aid our expansion into exciting new markets. We are delighted to welcome him to our team.”
