Seakeeper Inc. has promoted Rebecca Smitha to chief financial officer. Smitha was most recently the company’s vice president of finance. The announcement was made at the grand opening event of Seakeeper’s new headquarters.

“Rebecca and I have worked closely now for 10 years,” said Andrew Semprevivo, Seakeeper

president and CEO, in the statement. “Without her leadership and expertise, we wouldn’t be where we are today. We are grateful to have someone who works tirelessly and believes in Seakeeper’s mission like Rebecca does. She is beyond deserving and will continue to be an asset to Seakeeper as our CFO.”
