Seakeeper, a US manufacturer of gyro stabilisation systems, has appointed Giorgio Avigdor to the new position of regional sales manager for southern Europe. Based in Genoa, Italy, Avigdor will be responsible for sales development and management throughout the region.

Prior to his appointment Avigdor worked as national sales manager for Ultraflex, a global manufacturer and distributor of leisure boat accessories and equipment.

“Seakeeper is a young and dynamic company. We have many exciting opportunities for growth, both with OEMs and in refit projects,” comments Avigdor.

In addition, Phil Bourque, who currently works at regional sales manager for EMEA, has been given the responsibility for global management of Seakeeper’s largest OEM accounts.

Commenting on his new role, Bourque says: “Seakeeper has become the industry’s leading name for gyro stabilizers, largely due to our education efforts in the global market. My new challenge is to nurture partnerships with serial production builders and transform Seakeeper into standard equipment worldwide.”

Seakeeper designs and builds gyros for recreational, commercial and military vessels from 11 m to over 61 m. The company counts more than 120 major boatbuilders among its constantly expanding customer base.
