Maritime software specialist GTMaritime has appointed Mike McNally (pictured above right) as sales and marketing director and and announced it has established its first office in the United States in Houston.
McNally began his career at sea working on offshore tugs and commercial fishing vessels before becoming a deck officer on Getty product tankers.
He later spent two decades with Global Wireless, until it was taken over by Inmarsat. Inmarsat retained McNally to manage maritime distribution partners for its new Global Xpress service and he ultimately became vice president of sales for America. For the last three years, he was managing director for Telemar USA and oversaw its merger into Marlink.
“Over the years I’ve worked with Mike in various positions, so I’ve witnessed the tenacity and strategic vision he can bring to a team firsthand,” said GTMaritime CEO Robert Kenworthy. “His wealth of experience in the maritime satellite market will be invaluable in driving GTMaritime’s continued growth.”
