Racal-Decca Marine Promotes Executives, Opens New Offices

A major restructuring of executives at Racal-Decca Marine Inc., New Orleans, La., was announced at the recent opening of a new regional sales and technical support office in New Orleans, at 5612 Jefferson Highway.

Mark Lipp, formerly comptroller comptroller and treasurer, was promoted to executive vice president, finance and operations. Bob Burns, former director of sales and marketing, was named executive vice president, sales and marketing. The marketing operation will be relocated to 4200 23 Avenue West, Seattle, Wash. Finance and operations will remain at Palm Coast, Fla.

The company took the opportunity to thank the former president Joe Hurley, who is leaving the company to pursue other business interests, for his leadership during his term of office.

Racal-Decca Marine Inc. resulted from the acquisition of Decca by Racal Electronics and the subsequent purchase by the Racal-Decca Group (as Decca was renamed) of ITT's 50 percent holding in ITT Decca Marine. A new expanded service and sales facility at 70 Jackson Drive, Cranford, N.J., to serve the Port of New York and ensure continuance of the Racal-Decca reputation for unparalleled after-sales service was also announced. "These new offices underscore the determination of Racal-Decca Marine Inc. to support the marine community to the hilt," said Mr. Burns.

Racal-Decca Marine enjoys a successful track record in all four marine electronics areas: small boat and deepsea radar, navigational systems, radio communications, and autopilots.
