Byron Originals Inc. will soon move on without its longtime marketing manager, Marc Jensen.

Jensen, who has worked at Byron since before it became a well-known name in the hobby industry, will retire effective Feb. 28, 2014, according to a press release from the company. Byron is currently searching for his replacement.

“When I accepted this position, I thought it looked like something fun to do for a couple years,” Jensen said. “That was 30 years ago and each day since has been a pure joy.”

In 1986, Jensen was instrumental in the development of Byron Fuels, which today is a global leader in model engine fuels, according to the release. He has also kept Byron’s products current in an ever-changing hobby market, the release said.

Jensen was also instrumental in the company’s entry into the pool and spa market, helping create an entirely new dealer network for Byron.

Byron is now in the process of searching for a new director of sales and marketing, and Jensen plans to play an active role in finding his replacement. Interested candidates should contact Jensen at Experience in the hobby is a primary requirement.
