SEABLU's Leadership Team

Brian Gamble 
SEABLU Founder and CEO

SEABLU Founder and CEO Brian Gamble has long been intrigued by the majesty of the Earth's Oceans. Growing up on a farm in Ohio, it was always his desire to work in technology and to be involved in marine conservation. 
Brian grew as a technologist having served as a CIO for the world's largest environmental company. He worked on initiatives like the BP Oil Spill and the Fukushima Daiichi accident that directly affected the condition of our seas.

Brian and his family relocated to Cape Coral, Florida, the city with the most canals in the world, in May 2017.


Hurricane Irma hit the city in the same month they moved into their new house. The amount of debris that had been blown and washed into the waterways, canals, and finally the Gulf of Mexico astounded Brian. The fact that there was no actual solution in place to remove the submerged material from the canals shocked him even more.

With local and state governments focused mainly on the human side of the storm, Brian decided it was time to form an organization to help out on the marine side. Using his extensive background in technology and passion for marine conservation, SEABLU was established to serve our Seas and to improve the quality of the life that exists in and around them.

Tommy Aceto
SEABLU Advisor

SEABLU Advisor Tommy Aceto has shared a passion for the water ever since he was a child. Tommy can remember watching giant 1,000 ft. ocean freighters glide across his bedroom window. Growing up on Lake St. Clair, just outside of Detroit, Michigan, Tommy could usually be found on the water, chasing down freighters on his jet ski, swimming or ice skating for miles across the frozen water. Tommy’s love of the water and his country lead him to a 16 year career as a Navy SEAL, where he deployed all over the world conducting missions and humanitarian operations.


Tommy excelled in medicine, intelligence, and developing curriculum as a Master Training Specialist within the Naval Special Warfare Command. He has been heavily involved in veteran mental health to combat the extremely high statistics of veteran addictions and suicide rates in America. Tommy has gained national attention for his research in mental health treatments and is actively involved in legislative efforts in bill reform, federal and state funding for research and clinical trials for alternative veteran health treatments. Through his research, he believes that the ocean and waterways in general have a direct impact on the overall health and well being of humans and has joined SEABLU to help protect this vital natural resource. Tommy was a state champion wrestler and NCAA soccer player with a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Health Science and a minor in chemistry. Tommy also has a master’s of fine arts in directing and writing.
