Bailey, as IMTRA’s new Lighting Product Manager, will work directly with customers, supply partners and IMTRA’s inside and outside sales team to bring forward new lighting offerings. He will also be directing marketing efforts to ensure that new and existing products garner more visibility with marine and commercial audiences.

An avid boater, Bailey brings over a decade’s worth of marketing management experience to IMTRA. He is also an active member of his community and is on the Board of Advisors for his local YMCA branch, where his primary mission is to help enshrine the future of boating by rejuvenating their sailing program. 

“We’re very excited to have Connor join our team,” said Colby Chevalier, director of product management, IMTRA. “His dedication and knowledge will be key in developing new lighting products and solutions. We are confident he is more than capable of providing both our customers and sales teams the support they need.”

In his new role, Ambrosi will help IMTRA capitalize on their growing commercial sales and expand product offerings by actively supporting both product managers and the sales team in pursuing new and existing commercial business.

Ambrosi comes to IMTRA with experience as the general manager of a family-owned dive tourism operation in Curaçao, where he was responsible for maintaining a fleet of seven commercial dive boats. He holds an MBA, a 100-ton USCG license, and a technical cave diving certification, and is multilingual, speaking fluent Spanish and intermediate Dutch. In his spare time, Ambrosi enjoys motorcycle camping, fishing and sailing – and he once discovered a shipwreck in 350 feet of water.

“Christian is a welcome addition to our commercial staff,” said Eric MacDonald, director of commercial sales, IMTRA. “He understands, firsthand, the needs of commercial customers and uses that experience to make sure IMTRA’s commercial customers have the high-quality sales, service and support we are known for.”
