MILFORD, N.H. – The National Marine Electronics Association bestowed a Lifetime Achievement Award on Stephen Boucher, Airmar Technology Corp. chairman and CEO, Airmar said in a press release Sunday. Boucher accepted the award from David Hayden, NMEA president, at the annual NMEA convention held earlier this month in Amelia Island, Fla.
The award, presented at the NMEA convention closing dinner, has not been given since 2002. It was awarded before marine electronics manufacturers, dealers and members of the press.
“The Lifetime Achievement Award honors living individuals who have improved the public good through the field of marine electronics,” Hayden said.
Boucher founded Airmar in 1981, and has been the driving force behind the transducer and sensor manufacturer for more than 25 years, taking a hands-on approach to new product development and keeping Airmar ahead of the technology curve, according to the company. Airmar has been granted more than 30 technology patents over the years.
“I am extremely honored to accept this prestigious award on behalf of the entire Airmar team,” Boucher said. “We’ve always been fortunate to attract and maintain the industry’s most talented and creative professionals, especially in the areas of design and engineering. This award may have my name on it, but it is testimony to the hard work and dedication of every member of the Airmar family.”
