Deep Impact, a Miami-based manufacturer of high-performance powerboats, appointed Tim Gallagher as its sales director.

Gallagher brings a wealth of boating knowledge and more than a decade of business experience, most recently with the Cigarette Racing Team.

"As a competitor to Deep Impact, I had been paying close attention to the changes occurring in both their business structure and product improvements," said Gallagher. "I found that their desire to grow and advance the brand as a whole made our match a perfect fit. It was striking to find a boatbuilder that looked at its long-term success rather than survival on a weekly basis."

He began his career in Pennsylvania as a parts manager with motorcycle importer Cagiva USA. In 2002, he relocated to Florida with Sunstream Boat Lifts and eventually become Florida division manager. A few years later, Gallagher began selling boats for Cigarette Racing Team and was ultimately promoted to sales director in July 2005.

Gallagher graduated from Penn State with a bachelor's degree in marketing and management.
