I’m responsible for the maritime side of MAST’s business; this includes both the counter piracy operations and the technical installations on yachts.
As a former Royal Navy Officer I was well placed to join the emerging maritime security sector in 2009 after the rise of Somali piracy. Working with MAST from the very early days I have played an active role and pioneered the current service offering which broadly reflects how the market looks today. Prior to taking over as Maritime Director I was based in Singapore with MAST for four years conducting business development and managing our business in the Far East. I find the Far East a fascinating place to be and work, and after a lot of business and recreational travel I got to know the region very well.
