IMCA Promotes Ford to Technical Director

International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA), has promoted Mark Ford to technical director of the global organisation.

Mark has been with IMCA for the last seven years and knows the association perhaps better than anybody,” explained IMCA’s CEO, Allen Leatt. “I know therefore that he will do a great job for us in driving our technical programme, which continues to grow in scope and detail.”

Ford joined the IMCA Secretariat in 2012 from Charles Taylor Consulting, where he worked as a senior surveyor and divisional director in the safety and loss prevention department.

At Braemar Engineering he was a consultant engineer specialising in FMEA studies of offshore vessels. Earlier, he worked as a superintendent engineer managing a fleet of vessels with respect to dry dockings and technical maintenance. Ford has a 25-year career at sea including extensive experience as Chief Engineer on DSVs and offshore support vessels.

In 2018 he was unanimously endorsed by the International Association of Classification Societies (IACS) to become a member of the IACS Advisory Committee (AVC).
