BMT is delighted to announce the appointment of Andrew Bell as their new Senior Business Development Manager for Maritime Surveys in the UK and Europe, effective this month. The appointment will support the delivery of the company’s Marine Surveys’ business strategy and growth under Dennis de Bruin’s leadership. With over 35 years of maritime experience, including casualty response, investigation and legal work, Andrew will be instrumental in bringing a wealth of knowledge and expertise to his new role.
As a Master Mariner and former Officer with the Royal Navy, Andrew has honed his analytical skills and gained invaluable experience. He spent thirteen years with the Royal Fleet Auxiliary and worked in quality and safety management for a large commercial ship manager, where he was in daily direct contact with seagoing Masters.
