Alan Wrigley has announced that he is stepping down from his role as Managing Director of communication and safety at sea specialist Ocean Signal.

Effective from 1 June 2017, company founder Wrigley is replaced by Ocean Signal’s current Senior Project Manager, Neil Jordan, in a planned transition developed to continue the rapid growth of the Margate-based business.

Wrigley, who has been involved in the marine electronics industry for over 41 years, has steered engineering-led Ocean Signal from a new company with a small portfolio of devices in 2011 to an international brand and world leader in safety beacon technology. It now supplies a range of ground-breaking products to the leisure, commercial and professional offshore sectors.

Wrigley will continue to work with Ocean Signal on special projects and on a consultancy basis, and leaves his position with confidence that the company will continue to strengthen and bring more innovative products to the market in the years ahead.

He said: “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. In a succession which has been part of our long-term business strategy, I am pleased to hand the reigns over to such an excellent choice for our new Managing Director who has a great deal of experience in the sector.

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, Inc., a move combining two of the most highly experienced electronic engineering teams in the marine communication industry.
