Campbell has headed the US Snorkel operation on an interim basis. "As President of our North American operations, David's experience and leadership will be invaluable, as we continue to strengthen our business and prepare Snorkel for the economy's rebound."

"I am proud to be leading Snorkel North America at such an exciting time for this company," Smith said. "We are executing a strategy to strengthen and enhance our customer offering. We are investing through the tough times so that we are ready to meet our customers' needs when the good times return."

Smith's appointment follows the recent addition of three senior Snorkel personnel in product support, finance and supply chain.
