Seakeeper, a global leader in gyro stabilization systems, has expanded its sales team with new personnel and internal promotions. The new positions come as part of Seakeeper’s strategic growth strategy, to capitalize on increasing product demand worldwide.
Chris Myers joins the company as southeast regional sales representative to further strengthen relationships and expand market share in this highly active US territory. Myers spent most of his professional career in or around shipyards and studied naval architecture at Westlawn Institute of Marine Technology.
Brook Stevens, promoted to regional sales manager, will develop and enhance accounts in all other US recreational marine markets. Stevens has been part of the Seakeeper team since 2009, previously holding positions of new business development and inside sales coordinator.
Jason Jones has been hired as a key account manager to work directly with select OEMs worldwide. Jones’ experience includes positions with propulsion and electronics companies, where he called on OEMs and service centers.
Andrew Semprevivo now serves as director of global sales for the recreational sector, with responsibilities for business development, service and technical support. He joined Seakeeper in 2008 as international inside sales manager, and subsequently served as the company’s global sales manager.
“We remain focused on building a highly responsive, dedicated team to deliver world-class customer service and support,” said John Kermet, COO. “Seakeeper is again positioned to achieve record growth this year, and this solid group of qualified salespeople will ensure we continue to dominate the vessel stabilization market worldwide.”
Seakeeper designs and builds stabilization gyros for recreational craft from 35′ to superyachts, as well as commercial and military vessels. Its worldwide customer base includes more than 100 boatbuilders, inclusive of hundreds of boat models.
With no external appendages, Seakeeper gyros mount within the hull and produce a powerful righting force to reduce resonant boat roll by up to 95%. The actively-controlled units are equally effective whether a boat is at anchor, slow speed or underway.
