Citing a rapidly growing worldwide market for its gyro stabilization products, Seakeeper has named Steve Shaw its newest field service manager. Seakeeper CEO Shepard McKenney made the announcement.
"2011 was a very solid year for Seakeeper," McKenney said. "Even in these trying economic times, we continue to grow. Steve will be instrumental in responding to the service needs of our customers and partners worldwide."
Originally from the UK, Shaw has 16 years of experience in the US marine industry. He most recently served as the head of service for a large East Coast shipyard.
The Seakeeper gyro's powerful righting force virtually eliminates discomfort and seasickness by minimizing rock and roll. The gyro optimizes torque to provide excellent stability while a boat is underway, anchored, or at zero or low speed.
