Newport, R.I.-based Siren Marine named industry veteran Phil Gaynor vice president of product management.
Most recently, Gaynor was with Navico, leading the creation, development and launch of its GoFree telematics program. He also held roles in the development of telematics solutions at Volvo Penta of the Americas and co-founded the SmartCraft program at Mercury Marine.
“We are thrilled to have Phil’s passion and experience on our team,” said Siren Marine founder and CEO Daniel Harper in a statement. “With his industry knowledge and understanding of what tomorrow’s boaters will need, we will continue to lead the ‘Connected Boat’ revolution that we began back in 2011. We’ve been doing this longer than anybody, and we were recently granted a U.S. trademark for the term ‘Connected Boat.’ We understand, however, that we can’t rest on our laurels.
“As our vice president of product management, Phil will play a key role in keeping us ahead of the technology curve,” Harper said.
