Ocean Signal founder Alan Wrigley has stepped down as managing director, handing over control of his company to Senior Project Manager Neil Jordan, effective June 1. The planned transition was developed to continue the rapid growth of the UK-based emergency and rescue communications business.

Wrigley will continue to work with Ocean Signal on special projects and on a consultancy basis.

“It has been a great experience to build the company to this stage and I step down with confidence that Neil will take us to the next level of growth and that Ocean Signal will continue to go from strength to strength,” he said in a statement. “I am certain that our engineering expertise and focus on research and development will ensure that Ocean Signal will continue to bring innovative safety products to market that will save lives.”

Jordan was appointed senior project manager in April. He has more than 20 years experience in the maritime and land electronic safety beacon industry.

Ocean Signal products are supplied to more than 40 countries for commercial, fishing, recreational and professional users. The company recently announced that its award-winning rescueME MOB1 AIS man overboard device will be integrated into all crew life jackets in this year’s Clipper 2017-18 Round the World Yacht Race.

Since its acquisition by Drew Marine Ltd in May 2015, Ocean Signal has reported an increased rate of growth while operating as a unit of Florida-based ACR Electronics.
