Changing Places

NanoFusion International, a manufacturer that incorporates nano-technology to enhance marine fuels, appointed Bruce Brown as director of its large yachts division.

“Bruce Brown has a proven history that will create sales for our breakthrough product that uses nano-technology more efficiently than any additive directed at the large-yacht business," NanoFusion International president Lisa Rae Donato said in a statement. 

"I am delighted to be associated with NanoFusion International,” Brown said. “Their DieselFusion product is perfect for the yacht captain and owner.”

Brown’s industry experience includes serving as president of Kirra Yacht Management Company, general manager of Palmer Johnson Savannah, COO of Newport Shipyard and vice-president/director of operations for Little Harbor Marine.
