Gardline Group Chairman Appointed Co-Chairman of Marine Industry Leadership Council

Gregory Darling, group chairman of Gardline has been appointed Industry Co-chair of the Marine Industries Leadership Council. Sharing this role with him is Rt Hon. Michael Fallon MP Minister of State for Business. The appointment is for two years and Gregory is replacing the outgoing Richard Sadler, CEO of Lloyds Register.

Upon his appointment, Gregory said “I believe that I am coming in at an exciting time, as the council shifts its focus from the development and promotion of a strategy through to the delivery of that strategy. The focus of the group must now be to establish or re-invigorate methods and systems to support active exports, to build on our expertise in technology and look to secure a technological advantage for the UK marine sector, supported by the skills and resources necessary to deliver that growth.”

Gregory has been involved directly with marine activities since the 1970’s, when Gardline started in Great Yarmouth at the beginning of North Sea gas exploration. He holds a business degree and has helped grow Gardline from an SME (small and medium-sized enterprise) to an extensive marine science and contracting company operating worldwide.

The Marine Industries Leadership Council will encourage the Marine Industries Alliance to deliver growth in partnership with Government through an increase in the awareness of the marine sector.
