General Electric

Financial Contribution

General Electric provided the first major cash funding for the Association for Marine Exploration -- a check for $45,000. This contribution support several AME exploration projects, including the 2005 expedition to Kiritimati (Christmas Island), and the Portable Fill Station, both of which gave our humble organization a real boost. Very special thanks to Jeffrey Immelt (CEO of GE) and Beth Comstock (at the time Vice President & Chief Marketing Officer for GE) for their support!
