UK diesel outboard engine specialist Cox Powertrain has appointed Hugh Hudleston as Head of Sales, responsible for the global sales and distribution of the CXO300 diesel outboard as well as managing key relationships within Cox’s network of 35 distributors across the US, UK, Europe and Asia.

Hudleston has more than 12 years experience of building businesses to capital raising and sales, as well as spending four years as a Director of the British Powerboat Racing Club, giving a broad knowledge of the marine industry, specifically the key leisure market for Cox as it continues to accelerate the global shipping of the CXO300.

Tim Routsis, CEO Cox Powertrain, said: “We are pleased to appoint Hugh as Head of Sales at Cox Powertrain. With a successful track record of growing businesses and a passion for our industry, Hugh is the ideal candidate to fulfil this role and help us achieve our business goals in becoming a leading powertrain manufacturer and a key player in the global marine engine market.”

Hudleston said: “I am very excited to have joined Cox Powertrain. It is a truly innovative British company, which, as the only manufacturer of a 300-horsepower diesel outboard engine, is offering a brand-new product in a brand-new product category. The response from distributors has been extraordinarily encouraging, and now that production of the engine is increasing, I am looking forward to helping to secure Cox's position as outboard engine supplier of choice for its target markets in the US, UK, Europe and Asia.”

Cox has been ramping up production of the CXO300 since the commencement of production in May this year. To date, engines have been shipped to Singapore, France, Sweden and the US with distribution to further geographical markets planned for this year.
