Communication and safety at sea specialist Ocean
Signal has announced the appointment of Rich Galasso as its new
US Sales Manager.

Galasso will assist with the company's sales growth strategy in
the US as demand continues to increase for Ocean Signal's
communication and safety products for the recreational and
commercial markets, including 406MHz beacons, AIS man overboard
devices and flares.

Bringing more than 20 years' experience in the marine industry to
the role, Galasso joins Ocean Signal following a seven-year stint
as regional distribution manager with satellite communications
and tracking leader Globalstar/SPOT. His strong background as a
sales manager also includes time at West Marine, Standard Horizon
and Uniden where he helped to increase dealer networks, grow
sales and market presence, and successfully introduce new product
lines. Further experience involved developing merchandising
strategies, and coordinating and participating in boat shows.

Galasso will specifically focus on increasing the sales of Ocean
Signal's compact rescueME range of safety products, including the
award-winning rescueME MOB1 with AIS and DSC, the rescueME EDF1
Electronic Distress Flare, rescueME PLB1 and rescueME EPIRB1,
plus the AIS Alarm Box, new M100 MSLD and the company's SafeSea
range of GMDSS products, consisting of the S100 SART, V100 VHF
and E100G EPIRB.

Ocean Signal operates as a unit of Florida-based ACR Electronics,
Inc., a global leader in safety and survival technologies. The
Drew Marine companies combine two of the most highly experienced
electronic engineering teams in the marine communication industry
to offer a comprehensive portfolio of reliable and easy-to-use
survival gear.
