SEA MACHINES APPOINTS US GOVERNMENT SALES DIRECTOR

Thursday, January 28, 2021 

Sea Machines Robotics has promoted Phil Bourque to the role of business development and sales director, US Government, with a focus on advancing the companys government contracts and related special projects.

Bourque is based in the Norfolk area for the role, enabling Sea Machines to establish a foothold closer to key government customers and its strategic partner Huntington Ingalls.

“On behalf of the entire Sea Machines team, I congratulate Phil on this much-deserved promotion,” said Sea Machines’ Michael G Johnson, CEO and founder. “Among other endeavors, Phil was instrumental in securing our agreement with the U.S. Department of Defense to engineer, build and demonstrate ready-to-deploy kits that enable autonomous, self-propelled operation of barges to land and replenish military aircraft. He also led the establishing of our relationship with the U.S. Coast Guard Research and Development Center and US Army Corps of Engineers, both of which are implementing and evaluating the SM300 autonomy system. We are certain Phil will further develop Sea Machines’ reputation as the premier commercial provider of intelligent vessel technology to the US Government.”

With more than 15 years’ experience working in the marine industry, Bourque joined the company in 2017 as director of business development.
