LEWISVILLE, Texas – August 28, 2001 – The Slalom Shop, a marine and watersport dealership in Lewisville, Texas, recently created a new position designed to directly target the water ski and wake board market.
Kris Tuininga was appointed to this position and is now The Slalom Shop's new director of water sports.
''This position was created to focus on the water ski and wake board market,'' said Derek Chapman, general manager of The Slalom Shop. ''This is grass roots stuff to us. We want to make sure we provide our water skiing and wake boarding customers with the best products, equipment and opportunities possible.''
As the director of water sports, Tuininga is responsible for managing the pro shop. This includes purchasing, merchandising and promoting it. He also will be handling a number of special events including boat shows, wake board clinics, and tournaments. In addition, Tuininga will coordinate several events designed to promote the new Tigé ski boat that The Slalom Shop is now carrying.
