Changing Places

Jeppesen Marine announced company changes within their Massa, Italy, branch and a new hire for the Americas.

The company's worldwide product management organization will be consolidated under Francesco Altamura as the new senior light marine project manager. Previously in service and product management for 15 years, Altamura will work out of Massa and oversee the market introduction of new products and services.

In another move, Andrea Buralli transitioned from European Market Management into the newly established position of Global Light Marine marketing manager and will work with Altamura out of the Massa office.

Buralli's position will be filled by Gianluca Tucci, who will continue to oversee Jeppesen Marine's original equipment manufacturer business while also charting products and services.

Scott MacDonald joins the company as a new hire as an American market manager. Working out of Florida, MacDonald will be responsible for introducing key products in the United States and surrounding areas.
