ABILENE, TX - Tige Boats, Inc. announced today the appointment of Kimberly Knight as Controller. Knight accepted the promotion after helping guide Tige's continued financial strength as assistant Controller since March 2007. As Controller, Knight will assume responsibility for all Tige's accounting and financial functions.
Knight has more than 20 years experience in accounting and business management. Originally from Cincinnati, OH, Knight came to Abilene in 1990 after living in Japan and the Philippines. Prior to joining Tige she worked in accounting and business management for several companies in Ohio and Abilene, earning numerous achievement awards and professional certifications.
As Controller, Knight will provide fiscal leadership for Tige by continuing to exercise tight internal financial controls and implementing high efficiency standards. She will also play a key role in the company's budgeting and financial forecasting.
"Kimberly has proven to be a relentless financial steward for Tige during the past two years," said Tige CEO Charlie Pigeon. During this tough economic period her focus and resourcefulness has helped Tige to maintain and even strengthen our excellent financial position. Kimberly and the rest of the management team are a big reason that Tige is, to my knowledge, the only inboard company that has not had to shut down production during recent months."
Because of its financial strength, low inventory and proactive approach to current market conditions, Pigeon said that Tige is well positioned for the future. In the coming weeks the company will roll out its 2010 model lineup that features several significant innovations including TigeTouch exclusive touch-screen technology.
"I am honored to be appointed Controller," Knight said, "and I'm excited to be part of a company that is really going places. I am committed to helping Tige continue its growth and success for many years to come."
Headquartered in Abilene, Texas, Tige Boats manufactures a line of high-end multi-sport inboard boats distributed through a worldwide network of Tige dealerships. Additional information about Tige and its model lineup is available at www.Tige.com.
