Andrew Black helping Nicom Maritime grow

Given his very positive track record with Nicom Interactive, I have asked Andrew Black to help grow our Nicom Maritime division. Andrew had been doing sales at Nicom for a number of years, and will be devoting approximately half his time to Nicom Maritime, working with Barry Milne and me.

Andrew has demonstrated good business development capabilities in our Interactive division, growing that team and introducing new offerings like Internet Marketing (something we’ll also use in Nicom Maritime), content management system expertise, document management expertise, etc.

Now that we have the marketing plan finalized for Nicom Maritime, Andrew will be working on the implementation of that plan. I have every confidence that Andrew will be successful in that endeavour.
