Terry Carlson has been appointed to the Raymarine board as President of Americas and Global Product Management, and will be based at Raymarine¹s offices in Nashua, N.H. Formerly Vice President and General Manager North America/President Canada at Polaroid Corporation and holding senior sales and marketing positions at Black and Decker and Emerson Electric, Carlson brings an immense wealth of knowledge and experience.
