Boulder Boatworks reported that Co-Owner and Commercial Director Shaun Hargrave is relocating to Missoula, MT, and will transition into a sales rep role. 

The company stated in a release that Hargrave will leverage his seasoned sales experience as the brand’s new independent sales rep in the Northern Rockies, covering Montana, Idaho and Wyoming.

“It is with great excitement and nostalgia that I sit down to write this note. Cutting right to the chase, Daisy and I will be moving the family to Missoula, MT,” Hargrave wrote to co-workers and customers. “Missoula has long been a part of Boulder Boat Works’ history, and we are excited to advance our presence in the Northern Rockies. We look forward to raising our family on the local waters and within the community.”

To accommodate Hargrave’s move, he also noted he would be stepping down from his current role and his interest in the company to become an independent sales rep.

“This move is necessary to keep strong leadership at Boulder HQ and will allow me to be present in the Northern Rockies.” he explained.

The company said, “While there will be a massive hole left with the departure of Hargrave from day-to-day business operations, the brand is continuing to evolve and move forward with new responsibilities and roles for existing leadership.”

Trevor Hanson will reportedly continue his role as master builder and production lead as the managing partner of operations. Shaun Cagley will become the managing partner for the commercial role, overseeing the brand’s sales, marketing, and business development. The company said, “The Boulder team of skilled craftsmen will continue to handcraft high-end drift boats.”

“The ‘Gravedigger’ has been a huge part of our brand for the past six years,” offered Cagley. “It will not be easy to replace his passion and commitment to building the best drift boats on the market but the show must go on. We are really looking forward to seeing what Shaun can do in this new role and are excited to see him happy and thriving in a place he loves.”
