FUSION Hires Lott as U.K. Business Development Manager

Southampton, United Kingdom. – FUSION®, a worldwide leader in marine entertainment, announced today the appointment of Kevin Lott as its new Business Development Manager for the United Kingdom and Ireland. With more than 12 years of marine and consumer product sales experience, he joins Fusion after spending seven years as a marine sales account manager with Garmin. Lott will focus on increasing sales through greater market penetration for Fusion marine products in both the traditional endemic markets as well as relevant tangential industries.

“I am very pleased to welcome Kevin on board,” said Matthew Forbes, general manager of Europe and Middle East, Fusion Electronics. “The United Kingdom is a very important market for Fusion and I am confident his experience and passion will ensure our continued success. In addition, Kevin’s understanding of the navigation market will prove valuable as we begin delivering FUSION-Link products in the new year.”

FUSION-Link is a revolution in marine audio control. Multi-function displays, like chartplotters, fishfinders or radar systems with ‘FUSION-Link’ software installed have complete, on-screen access to on-board FUSION entertainment allowing boaters to navigate all stereo sources and full control of iPod/iPhone music libraries via track, artist, album or playlist. The system provides control of individual audio zones on a vessel separately or together, including control of the subwoofer level in each zone. Bass, midrange and treble levels are also adjustable. Boaters can further enhance FUSION-link products by adding a Wi-Fi router and using FUSION’s new app on an Apple iPad, iPhone or various Android products, for wireless remote control of the system anywhere on a boat. FUSION-Link also enables boat owners and boat builders to utilize the NMEA 2000 backbone to repeat system FUSION data on remotes, displays and navigation units as well as depth, speed and heading data, to name a few, to a FUSION display without running extra cables.

Kevin Lott assumed his role as U.K. Business Development Manager on December 1, 2012. He can be reached at +44_(0) 7881 271758 or at kevinl@fusionelectronics.com. For more information on FUSION or its entire line of marine and car audio products, please visit www.fusionelectronics.com.
