press release
Thursday, October 27, 2011

The worldwide leader in gyroscopic boat roll stabilization, Seakeeper, Inc. appointed a new chief operating officer.  Tom Goeke most recently served as chief executive officer of Kloeckner Pentaplast Group, a multinational manufacturer of industrial films and coatings.


"Tom is the right man at the right time for Seakeeper.  With our sales more than doubling year on year, we are experiencing the transition from limited production to mass manufacturing and want to realize all of the benefits that such a transition makes possible," said Seakeeper CEO Shepard McKenney.


"He has successfully run a large manufacturing company in a mature industry where absolute quality and efficiency is the standard," continued McKenney.  "Besides bringing the skills we need, we are grateful to have the services of such an outstanding individual and look forward to working with Tom in the coming years." With no external appendages, Seakeeper Gyro Stabilization Systems are mounted inside the hull and produce a powerful righting force to virtually eliminate boat rock and roll.  The actively-controlled units are highly effective at anchor, zero and low speeds, as well as while underway.
