Global Maritime names Americas regional manager

Global Maritime Consultancy & Engineering, a provider of offshore marine warranty, dynamic positioning and engineering services, has appointed a new Regional Manager for the Americas.

Global Maritime said on Tuesday that Espen Thomassen would be heading the company’s business throughout the region, which includes offices in Houston, Canada, and Brazil.

He will also lead Global Maritime’s involvement in providing Sub-Chapter M compliance services to inland waterways towing vessels throughout the U.S. Sub-Chapter M represents new US Coast Guard (USCG) standards on the inspection, standards, and safety policies of towing vessels.

David Sutton, CEO of Global Maritime Consultancy & Engineering, said: “Espen’s previous experience demonstrates a strong combination of both technical knowledge and commercial acumen. We are delighted to have him on board.”

On his appointment, Thomassen said: “I see enormous potential for growth in the Americas. The services and expertise we provide to dynamic positioning, marine warranty, mission critical systems, and now Sub-Chapter M will prove crucial to our Americas customers and prospects as they look for that extra competitive edge.”

Thomassen joined Global Maritime in 2012 as the company’s youngest-ever marine advisor at only 23 years of age. His last position at the company was the one of a Business Development Manager for Norway.
