Changing Places

Seakeeper, the worldwide leader in gyroscopic boat-roll stabilization, named Tom Goeke as its chief operating officer.

Goeke most recently was chief executive of the Kloeckner Pentaplast Group, a multinational manufacturer of industrial films and coatings.

"Tom is the right man at the right time for Seakeeper," Seakeeper CEO Shepard McKenney said. “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."
