Originally founded in 1977 by Pat Marrs, Communications North was purchased in 2019 by Kyra Freeman and Mike Coons. Under the new ownership, Communications North continues to offer the same quality service that you have come to expect, and hopes to grow with your continued support. Pat remains with Communications North as a mentor and contractor, and Sherry Perry continues to work in the office, offering our customers her 20+ years of industry knowledge. Mike brings over 12 years of at-sea marine technician experience on government, commercial, and research vessels. His expertise includes satellite communications, networking, navigation equipment, marine instrumentation, scientific data acquisition, and hydro-acoustic surveying. Kyra is the business manager of Communications North, and brings with her her experience in oceanography research, project management, and proposal writing.
