Dave Meyer – Director of Sales & Marketing
I grew up in a small lake community in Southeastern Wisconsin and have been an avid water enthusiast all my life. I enjoy spending time with my family at our cabin in central Minnesota, hunting beast and bird, and playing increasingly less competitive volleyball as I grow older. I have spent my career in retail as a merchant, salesman, marketer, and product development extraordinaire.
Steve Schneider – Territory Manager (North East US)
I grew up in Cold Spring, MN and my wife Lisa and I have been blessed with three wonderful boys. I enjoy the changing seasons and all the fresh water lakes that Minnesota has to offer, which makes for great fishing, hunting, boating and golfing. I have spent 20 years of my career with the IOS brands and the last 15 year as Sales Manager for Wave Armor.
Mike Jacobsen – Territory Manager (Midwest US)
I have lived most of my life in the Willmar, Minnesota area with my wife, Kristin and children, Ali and Ben. I enjoy restoring and showing collector cars. I also enjoy exploring the outdoors on my RZR, fishing and hunting. I have worked in outside sales in the power transmission industry and also in purchasing for the steel industry. I am excited to work with Wave Armor to develop new dealers and increase brand recognition in Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota, South Dakota and parts of Iowa and Illinois.
Kari Tatge – Sales & Marketing Specialist
A Grand Rapids, MN native, I spent much of my childhood swimming and tubing on Pokegama Lake (I never did master water skiing). I enjoy 4-wheeling, hanging out at the lake, watching football and NASCAR and spending as much time as I can with my two grandsons! The majority of my career has been spent in sales & marketing and I have learned the importance of educating customers so they can make a well-informed purchasing decision.
Marcus Manser – Account Manager
Being born and raised in Minnesota, as long as I can remember, I have had a passion for the outdoors. At a very young age, I chose snowmobiling, ATVing, fishing, and hunting over indoor activities. With family and friends deeply entrenched in the marine industry I was exposed to and participated in many fishing tournaments and marine industry events growing up. I wanted to learn all I could about the marine industry from a dealership perspective, so I took a position with a Midwest Marine Dealer. It was great, I absolutely loved the ability to work with customers who shared my passions. My background allowed me to assist others, fueling their passion for boating and fishing and look forward to continuing that with Wave Armor.
