SSI’s Doug McNeese Named President, International Business Development

Scuba Schools International (SSI), the premier Education and Business Support Company is proud to announce that Doug McNeese has been promoted to President, International Business Development.

“After 19 years of playing a primary role in the US and 4 years of being part of the International Management Team, we are excited to promote Doug to President, International Business Development. Doug’s role will simply shift from mainly domestic, to completely international,” stated Guido Waetzig, SSI CEO.

In 2017, the remainder of SSI USA customer and pro services, plus shipping and receiving moved to the Boca Raton office in Florida.  This opened up new business development opportunities. Along with his new international duties, Doug and Product Development will continue to operate out of the Fort Collins, Colorado office.

The goal of this promotion is to create one consistent plan in all parts of the world with a team of people that oversee 100+ different Countries and Regions of the world.  Part of this new role will be creating new and consistent tools and communicating with the international teams to further assist them in their growth.

“With the amazing growth of SSI around the world, I have played more and more of an international role each year, so this was just a natural progression. It’s a new chapter in my life and I am excited about the challenge and I could not be more thrilled,” Doug McNeese, SSI President, International Business Development.
