Red Rocket, Inc. announced that David Carley has been promoted to the position of Vice President, Sales and Marketing. Carley was most recently the company’s Director of Sales and Marketing for Europe, Middle East and Asia.

In his new post Carley will report to James B. Schultz, President and CEO of Red Rocket, and will be based at the company’s office in Wexford, Ireland. He will oversee all global sales and marketing to include building upon the EOS brand of ac-dc power supply products. This includes leading and supporting a global sales force, direct customer accounts, global sales channels and a North American sales representative network.

"David is a proven sales executive with a track record in sales and marketing leadership and in building customer loyalty," said Schultz. "He knows the EOS brand of products, the customer base and markets we serve and how to profitably grow a business. Red Rocket is positioned for accelerated sales growth and we are delighted to promote David from inside the organization to help take the company to the next level of success."

Carley has been with Red Rocket and its predecessor companies since 2000 except for a one year stint at Astrodyne USA as EMEA sales and marketing manager from late 2006 to late 2007. He rejoined Red Rocket in December last year. Carley was instrumental in building the European, Middle East and Asia customer base and sales channels over the past seven years and in developing successful marketing and brand development programs. Prior to joining Red Rocket, Carley was from 1993 to 2000 a sales and support manager for Europe at Artesyn Technologies and from 1988 to 1993 held field service engineer, quality, process and production management posts at both Brandner Micro Electronics, ABS Technology and Sorbus UK Ltd.

Carley commented, "Red Rocket has a superb customer base, great brand with the EOS products, excellent sales channels and world-class manufacturing in India. All the ingredients are here for continued success. Red Rocket offers customers high density, high efficiency power solutions and quick turn solutions for customized applications."
