Fastlane Communications adds marine industry clients


Fastlane Communications LLC announced major growth in the marine industry at the 2013 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show and said it is rolling out a new online newsroom for clients.

Fastlane added several marine industry players to the list of companies for which it handles public relations, including Dometic Marine, Marine Professionals and Subsea Global Solutions.

They join other marine industry leaders such as Global Ocean Security Technologies, OceanLED, Mastervolt/Marinco and MyBoatVillage.

After acquiring Gaspare Marturano’s marine practice in late 2012, the agency has added to its team that provides communications and PR, social and digital media, design, technology development and marketing campaigns for clients.

The new online newsroom will feature built-in social media and high search engine findability.

“Our marine clients experience measurable results where and when they want them. We consistently provide value in the form of deliverables such as media coverage, increased social media followings and engagement, mobile app launches, creative campaign ideation and execution and messaging that sells," FastLane Communications founder and CEO Chris Faust said in a statement.

"We're looking forward to expanding our relationships with members of the marine community — our clients, press, manufacturers, dealers and buyers — in person and online,” said Marturano, who is managing director of Fastlane’s social media and marine practice.
