Marine consultancy and ship surveyor Pirie & Smith has appointed Graeme Alexander as General Manager to head up the company and take responsibility for leading its activities across the globe.

The appointment is in response to a 12-month period of international expansion for the Aberdeen-headquartered firm, which has seen it establish representative agencies in Thailand, India, Singapore, Dubai and Europe to provide a global network for local and international clients in the offshore, marine, fishing, renewables and insurance industries. In addition, Pirie & Smith, which also has an office in London, is actively looking at additional business opportunities in the Middle East.

Alexander brings more than 34 years of seagoing and shore experience to the new post having previously worked in the U.S., Oman, India and Europe as well as the U.K. Most recently he was General Manager Marine Operations for the Isles of Scilly Steamship Company, responsible for passenger and cargo ferries and for the Penzance Dry Dock Company. Prior to that, roles ranged from engineer on specialized Dynamic Positioning (DP) vessels to Technical Superintendent and Project Manager of vessel conversions and new builds. Shoreside experience included managing marine assets for a range of diving, geotechnical drilling and well operations projects.
