As part of an ongoing global sales and service expansion initiative, gyrostabilisation specialist Seakeeper has hired Giorgio Avigdor to the new position of regional sales manager for southern Europe. At the same time, Phil Bourque is now responsible for global management of Seakeeper's largest OEM accounts.

Based in Genoa, Italy, Avigdor is responsible for sales development and management throughout the region. "Seakeeper is a young and dynamic company", he explained. "We have many exciting opportunities for growth, both with OEMs and in refit projects."

Avigdor joins Seakeeper from Ultraflex, a global manufacturer and distributor of leisure boat accessories and equipment, where he was national sales manager.

Bourque currently serves as Seakeeper's regional sales manager for EMEA but his duties have now been expanded to include the company's major OEM accounts worldwide.

"Seakeeper has become the industry's leading name for gyro stabilisers, largely due to our education efforts in the global market", he explained. "My new challenge is to nurture partnerships with serial production builders and transform Seakeeper into [the] standard equipment worldwide."
