Seakeeper appointed Phil Bourque regional sales manager for Europe, the Middle East and Africa and named Alex Patricio as service coordinator.

Bourque will spearhead sales efforts for new builds and refit applications. He was most recently a regional sales manager for a stainless-steel equipment manufacturer. His marine experience includes building custom performance boats, working in the service department of Essex Performance Boats and for Cabo Yachts.

Patricio comes to Seakeeper after a 16-year career as a service project manager at Derecktor Shipyards. A native of Portugal, Patricio also will assist customers in Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking countries.
