New Head of Sales for diesel outboard specialist

Cox Powertrain, a leading British manufacturer of high-powered diesel outboard engines for the global marine industry, is pleased to announce that Hugh Hudleston has joined the company as Head of Sales.

Hugh will be 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.

Hugh began his career in institutional equity sales at Matrix Corporate Capital, a private financial services group, and then became a Partner at Hawkwood, a capital raising and corporate advisory to smaller UK companies.

Hugh spent four years as a Director of the British Powerboat Racing Club. As an experienced mariner with broad experience and a keen interest in classic powerboats and sailing, he brings with him 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.

Commenting on his appointment, Hugh 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 commenced production of the CXO300 in May this year. To date, engines have been shipped to Singapore, France, Sweden and the US.
