Mount Dora, FL (May 23rd, 2013) ­ Humanoid Wake Inc. has announced the hiring of Clayton Underwood as the Director of Sales at their new Florida Headquarters.

With a degree in Marketing and Management from Indiana University, as well as a respected history in wakeboarding, Clayton will lead the global sales team and will help strengthen Humanoid’s newly relocated domestic operations.

“I’m really pumped to be a part of the Humanoid family. After several knee surgeries over the past year, I started looking into avenues in which I can apply my degree and build a career for the future. At the same time, I’m not ready to quit riding either. Humanoid Wake is allowing me to put my degree to use while still continuing to be a face in the wake industry. I’m more motivated than ever to stay healthy so I can continue to push my riding alongside the Humanoid brand.”

“Clayton brings a friendly, young, driven attitude we love to see in this industry. His years of pro level riding while working with premier industry brands will strengthen our new operations and help mold the vision of Humanoid,” said Joel Hilliard, founder of Humanoid Wake. He added, “I’m excited that Humanoid’s production and sales team will be working together in Florida, and Clayton is going to be a big part of that process.”

When not wakeboarding, Clayton enjoys pursuing other interests. When it’s too windy out to ride, you can often find Clayton floating on his blow up turtle, Harold, while flying butterfly shaped kites.
