SBSS Gets New Managing Director

Global Marine Group (GMG) has appointed Simon Hibberd as managing director of its joint venture S. B. Submarine Systems (SBSS), a provider of subsea cable installation and maintenance services in China.

Hibberd worked for Global Marine since 1988, initially worked on board Global Marine’s cable ships.

In 2007, he moved ashore and has subsequently held a number of senior posts at the company’s UK head office including director Fleet & Operational Support then director, Global Technical Sales, and most recently focusing on business development opportunities in Asia.

Simon’s operational knowledge, combined with managerial and business development experience gained through his career within the Global Marine Group, makes him a great fit for this key role,” said Ian Douglas, chief executive officer of Global Marine Group. “Simon will lead an organisation of more than 150 employees that achieved sales of nearly USD 50 million in 2017. His intrinsic understanding of offshore cable work and aptitude for delivering complex subsea projects are all essential qualities that should help us continue to grow SBSS’ position in the market.”
