Ocean Minded Inc announced that it has appointed Andrew Palmer to fill the newly created position of General Manager.

Mr. Palmer joins Ocean Minded with more than 20 years of experience in the action sports market. Notably, Mr. Palmer was co-founder of Animal, the leading action sports brand in the United Kingdom.
