Maritime Assurance & Consulting (MAC), a Bureau Veritas Group company, has announced four new appointments to strengthen its offering and add further expertise to the business.

In the wake of MAC recording its highest ever number of offshore man/days in its first half of the year and the second half of 2018 looking to match this trend, the company has enhanced its engineering team by welcoming Sigurd Vermundundsen as Master Mariner, John Stockdale as Marine Manager and Oguz Oktay, as Principal Naval Architect. The fourth new recruit, Theresa Suttar, joins the document control team.

As MAC enjoys one of its busiest periods to date, Vermundundsen and Stockdale will work closely to support MAC Operations Manager Neale Fraser. Vermundundsen comes with an extensive background having worked previously in marine warranty services and as a vessel surveyor, DP witness and surveyor. Now focused primarily on vessel assurance, Vermundundsen will continue progressing his own skill set, while sharing disciplines and practical knowledge with colleagues and teams at MAC.

Stockdale joins MAC with over 40 years’ experience, having been involved in the marine industry for his entire working life. Starting off at sea, Stockdale moved into training, then managing vessels and people and latterly into consulting. His wide range of experience brings a wealth of knowledge to MAC, where he hopes to continue developing the company’s methodology – improving processes and make any changes to improve on an already excellent performance and maintain the highest of standards.

Oktay’s appointment will bolster the engineering team’s Cessation of Production (CoP) offering. Having previously worked for the Ministry of Defense service companies, he brings expertise in a range of fields, including site, project and planning engineering, structural/naval architecture and welding management. Backed by his specialist knowledge of end-to-end marine experience, Oktay will provide MAC with further flexibility to support marine and engineering marine warranty scopes.

Theresa Suttar brings experience general administrative support within the industry and working alongside surveyors to support the international company with document processing and control, helping projects throughout their lifetime.
