There’s a reason the Offshore Only general discussion was buzzing last week when the news became public knowledge that Tim Gallagher was joining the team at Marine Technology Inc. (MTI), a company known for its stellar high-performance catamarans. (Read Matt Trulio’s story on speedonthewater.com.)

But he works hard for that reputation; he takes pride in it, too. He has ever since the day he gave notice at Evinrude to join the sales team at Cigarette Racing. In 2010, Gallagher left his job as Cigarette’s sales director to assume general manager responsibilities at Deep Impact Boats, a role he held until last week.
