Australian marine contractor MMA Offshore has appointed David Ross as its new chief executive officer with effect from 1 July 2019.

Ross (previously the company’s deputy CEO) will succeed Jeffrey Weber and will initially be based in Singapore.

Weber will remain as managing director, based in Australia, until the conclusion of the company’s 2019 annual general meeting to be held later this year.

Ross joined MMA in 2005 and has held a number of roles at the company over that time, including general manager of operations, chief operating officer and deputy chief executive Officer.

MMA’s chairman, Andrew Edwards, said: “David has the ideal blend of skills and experience in operational, strategic and commercial roles to lead MMA through its next phase of growth. I am very pleased that David has agreed to accept the role of CEO and together with the Board of Directors, I look forward to working closely with him.”

David Ross stated: “I look forward to working with Andrew, the board, MMA’s management team and both the shore based and seagoing staff – with a clear focus on maintaining our high operating standards whilst delivering on MMA’s growth strategy to drive returns for the company’s shareholders.”
