OceanLED, a leading manufacturer of LED marine lighting is proud to announce that William Banning has joined the USA team in the role of superyacht manager, with the primary objective of growing the company’s superyacht related business.

Don DeMott, US general manager said, “As we’ve experienced growth in the superyacht category, it was time to bring in a qualified candidate to strengthen the company’s position in the superyacht market. We are fortunate to have found Williams as his expertise in different sectors of the marine electrics and yachting industries will be invaluable to all involved.“
