AquaStar Pool Products, Inc. announces the hiring of Daniel Nicholas as its new west coast regional sales manager. Daniel is a long-time industry veteran with over 20 years of experience in sales and territory management. Based out of the San Diego area, Daniel will work alongside Devin Cahn Associates (DCA) to support the states of California, Nevada, Arizona, Oregon and Washington.
