Siren Marine announced that COO Jeffrey Poole was named CEO following the death last week of company founder Daniel Harper.

“Dan left us unexpectedly, and we will all miss him,” Poole said in a statement. “He followed his captain’s instincts and had things mindfully in place — a sound ship, trusted crew and most importantly, a carefully charted course.”

Poole told Trade Only Today that the industry is going to see some “exciting news and partnership announcements involving Siren Marine in the near future. There were many months of hard work, product development, discussion and negotiations that will eventually bring these industry-changing developments to fruition. I’m honored to have worked shoulder to shoulder with Daniel on these projects, and it will be a proud moment for all of Siren Marine when we’re able to share them with the industry.”

Poole added: “One of the things that brought Dan and I together was the experience we shared as offshore sailors, along with a true passion for spending time on the water and the burgeoning need to have every boater connected. I know these common goals will serve me well as I work to lead the Siren Marine team in carrying on Dan’s legacy.”
