ACR Electronics, a maritime safety and survival manufacturer, said it appointed a new sales manager in its land and marine division for Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

ACR said Guillaume Delcourt will focus on expanding the company’s international sales footprint in those regions as demand increases for its range of 406 MHz beacons, AIS man-overboard devices, distress lights and other safety products for the recreational and commercial markets.

Delcourt brings several years of experience in the marine sector, including European sales experience with a major emphasis with French OEM boatbuilders.

He joins ACR after three years at marine equipment manufacturer Lewmar and three years as international sales manager at Karver Systems, covering Europe, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa and the United States.

In a previous role, he also managed equipment logistics for the Extreme Sailing Series Europe, based on the Isle of Wight.

“I am really looking forward to this exciting challenge and working with the team at ACR Electronics to further increase the market presence of the established safety products, as well as introducing our new devices, across the EMEA regions,” Delcourt said in a statement.

“I am confident that with Guillaume’s understanding of the regions and solid level of strategic thinking he will no doubt achieve the sales distribution goals we have for the EMEA,” ACR electronics sales manager Bob Pro said.
