Erica Geoffroy has joined Allison Marine Holdings as marketing director, a newly created position. A recipient of the Weatherford Undergraduate Scholarship, Geoffroy earned a bachelor’s degree in marketing this year from UL Lafayette’s Marketing Department, which has recently received national accolades for teaching and student sales competitions. The Lafayette native is in charge of Allison Marine’s domestic and international marketing management and strategy and sales management.

“Allison [Marine] has built a strong reputation for quality of service, but we have been weak at marketing that reputation to the world,” Allison Marine founder and Chairman Steve Orlando said in announcing the hire. “I wanted everyone to know that our team is different in a way that we are fast, focused, flexible and friendly.”

Headquartered in Lafayette, the company provides lifecycle services for production platforms in the Gulf of Mexico and internationally. Allison competes in the highly fragmented offshore services segment of the global oil and gas industry, offering services that include new platform design, platform refurbishment, marine outfitting, platform repair and maintenance, decommissioning, and well plugging and abandonment.
