Global Ocean Security Technologies (GOST), a US-based marine security specialist, has promoted Scott Breaux to global sales and marketing director – business strategies analyst.
In his new role as GOST sales and marketing director, Breaux (pictured above) will oversee the firm’s initiatives and strategies for both the recreational and commercial maritime markets. His responsibilities will include identifying potential markets for expansion, ensuring supply chain viability and establishing new global partnerships.
“I’ve known Scott for over a decade, having collaborated with him on various projects and had him on the team here at GOST since 2020,” says Jay Keenan, president and CEO at GOST. “He has excelled in his prior role with us, and with his extensive maritime experience over his career, I know he’s just the right guy to take us to the next level in global sales. We’re thrilled to have Scott help us shape the future of GOST.”
“Being part of the GOST team has been very rewarding so far,” adds Breaux. “I think that I bring a unique blend of military discipline, technical acumen and business strategy to the table, as well as values that match GOST’s. We share a track record that reflects a commitment to the very best in quality and innovation, as well as a holistic understanding of what it means to lead this industry. I look forward to this new role and the opportunity to lead my team to success in the years ahead.”
Breaux has been with GOST since 2020, when he became a member of the support team. Before his time with GOST, he served in the U.S. Navy and spent 30 years of his career in the offshore energy and maritime industries.
Earlier this week, Gost hit headlines after one of its NavTracker security systems was instrumental in recovering a stolen 34 Regulator tender off St. Martin within six hours of its theft. The boat, ironically named Can’t Touch This, was stolen off its mooring ball in Simpson Bay on the Caribbean island.
The captain was eventually able to recover the vessel at Nettle Bay beach, where it had been abandoned, the next morning.
