The world’s leading supplier of marine distress signals, Drew Marine Signal & Safety, is delighted to announce its Head of Global Marketing, Chris Feibusch, has been appointed as an Ambassador for the Sailors' Society.

As an Ambassador, Chris will act as a key advocate for the Sailors' Society, promoting the charity’s cause amongst contacts within the maritime industry and sharing information about its work. Chris’ role will involve speaking on behalf of the Sailor’s Society, encouraging companies and individuals to offer their support.

Chris will also be utilising his network to generate new ideas and initiatives for collaboration between Sailors' Society and the maritime safety industry.

Chris comments, 'Drew Marine Signal & Safety is a natural partner for the Sailors' Society as both organisations work towards a safer environment at sea. Sailors' Society's work around the world is really inspiring, as it takes a holistic approach and addresses all aspects of welfare in the seafaring community.'

'This partnership leverages the power of Drew Marine Signal & Safety as a key voice in the maritime safety industry to achieve greater support for a charity that is making a real difference to the people working at the sharp end of shipping. We are proud to stand up for seafarers' welfare and I’m delighted to have been accepted as a member of the Ambassadors group.'

Jenny Boland, Corporate and Trust Manager at the Sailors' Society, is delighted that Chris has joined the charity’s Ambassadors Group. Jenny says, 'We are so thrilled to welcome Chris as a Sailors' Society Ambassador and feel sure that he will prove an influential ally in spreading the word of our life-changing work. His passion for our cause is wonderful to see, and we look forward to working with him to open new doors for the Society as we expand our global operations.'

'Chris was the perfect choice, as he has been personally involved in supporting us for a number of years, even braving the terror of skydiving in aid of our global work with seafarers!'

Drew Marine Signal & Safety has been supporting the Sailors' Society since 2009, participating and organising numerous fundraising events and providing regular sponsorship of the charity’s Chart and Compass newsletter.
