Ryan Van Der Lee,

Sealegs newly appointed Operations Manager.

The success of Sealegs comes down to its staff. Staff are the backbone of what makes Sealegs the innovative, fun, and enjoyable place to work.

Over the last 12 months, Sealegs has experienced continued growth in all faucets of the business. The development team has tripled in size to allow for continuous improvement on the current model range, as well as the development of new innovative models and technology to deal with the unprecedented sales demand. Sealegs is set to release two new models in 2022.

Sealegs sales peaked at a record high for the 2022 financial year with over 70% growth in units sold. To further deal to this increased demand Sealegs has had to expand into a new premises resulting in the manufacturing process being spread across four locations on Albany’s Parkhead Place.

Today we have the pleasure of celebrating the success of an individual that has been at Sealegs for nearly 10 years. This individual has grown with the company and has gone from strength to strength in his career. He has made his way through the ranks, starting off on the assembly line in stage 1 and working his way towards his current role as assembly Manager. He was awarded apprentice of the year in 2018 and was the fastest to complete the apprenticeship program.

We are proud to announce Ryan Van Der Lee as the new Sealegs International Operations Manager.

David McKee Wright says “Ryan has always had and will always have the support of his peers and colleagues due to his hard working and supportive nature. Ryan is always the one to put others first, and never turns down a challenge. With Sealegs’ recent growth, the need for an Operations Manager to oversee the full manufacturing process has become apparent to ensure the efficient running of the full production process.”

Ryan Van Der Lee says “I feel humbled and privileged to be working alongside a great team at Sealegs. I have no doubt that the challenges I will face in my new role will be easily overcome with the support and determination of my colleagues. I am excited about the upcoming challenge and I look forward to seeing what our team will achieve in the years to come.”

Please join us in wishing Ryan well for his new appointment as Operations Manager. We know he will continue the pursuit of greatness, and we can’t wait to witness the great things he will achieve in his new role.
