Eric Engelbrecht has been hired by Art Anderson Associates as the new vice president of the Marine Group.
Engelbrecht joins the company with a previous history of military service and progressively higher levels of industry experience.
“Art Anderson Associates is well known as the best small business in the area for supporting the government in naval architecture and marine engineering,” Engelbrecht said, “This is one reason I wanted to work here.”
Engelbrecht earned his degree at the U.S. Naval Academy and spent his time in the Navy as a nuclear submarine officer. His civilian career includes business development, technical sales, project management and engineering for marine and naval architecture related industries.
Engelbrecht will lead a team of naval architects and marine engineers and hopes to grow the business on both the government and commercial sides.
Engelbrecht is from the Midwest, but spent time in Kitsap during his military service and his family wanted to return. He lives on Bainbridge with his wife and daughter.
