In our latest interview we caught up with Brian, who recently celebrated five years with Back Cove Yachts. Brian began in decking, and in the time since he has established himself as a go-to for help of all kinds. Now, in his role as Purchasing Agent, he puts all his friendly helpfulness to expert use, keeping the production lines running smoothly and ensuring everyone has what they need when they need it. Thanks Brian, from everyone here at Back Cove Yachts!
