The vessel’s design specification meets the highest requirements for subsea work suitable for deepwater operations worldwide.
“We have a strong vision for the future of Maersk Supply Service and we are very pleased to have Brett on board. He brings with him a wealth of knowledge to Maersk Supply Service about the subsea sector and also the intricacies of the diverse Asia Pacific market, and we look forward to drawing on his experience which will compliment other key positions currently being fulfilled,” Chief Commercial and Strategy Officer, Soren Karas, explains.
As Regional Manager Brett Silich will work closely with key clients, heading up commercial activities, coordinating regional expansion plans, aligning business strategies, fostering strategic partnerships, and he will be leading a team of 85 people.
