Safety solutions provider Survitec has appointed Mark Baines (pictured) as Global Vice President, Cruise.
Based in Survitec’s Miami office, he will build a dedicated sales and operations team focused solely on partnering with cruise clients to achieve their safety and equipment reliability objectives.
He joined Survitec on secondment from Survitec’s majority owners Onex in July, 2017 and has been heavily involved in the development of Survitec’s go-to-market strategy. He also retains his current role as Group Strategy Director, reporting to CEO Brian Stringer.
Stringer said: “Our cruise clients are highly important to us and establishing a division dedicated to serving this segment reinforces our commitment to providing them with excellent service. Mark has rapidly built up the existing team and has engaged closely with our cruise clients to ensure our offerings are being developed to match and exceed the demands of a very discerning client base.”
Baines added: “Survitec has provided best-in-class reliability-centred inspection and maintenance services to defence, marine and aerospace operators globally for over 160 years and we are building on this solid foundation to serve our cruise clients in a new way.
“We are increasingly providing our clients with enhanced services as they look for support in reducing the complexity and headache of safety asset management. My own vision, and the vision of our cruise team, is to make safety asset management simple, and to set a new standard for safety asset reliability,” he said.
