"As Sam assumes the CFO responsibilities we will be implementing further improvements in the efficiency and cost effectiveness of our operations," said Quintin Kneen, GulfMark’s President and Chief Executive Officer. "We are beginning to see improving market conditions, and these improvements coupled with our lower cost structure position GulfMark well to return to positive earnings and cash flow."
