Global expansion for Braemar Marine

June 4 - Braemar Marine Inc, the marine claims and risk assessment specialist, has expanded its operations in both London and Singapore via a series of key appointments.

Chris Lunda, former vice president of Braemar Marine in the USA, will assume a new role in Singapore as managing director of operations and development for the Far East. Chris joined Braemar Marine in 2009 at its start up after a long and distinguished career in the US marine surveying sector.

Brian Cushing, recently with Braemar Falconer in London, has joined Braemar Marine to head up its European operations, working in conjunction with the company's Far East, US and Brazilian offices. Brian brings a wealth of high level experience with him and is well known in the London and European markets. Also joining the UK operation in June is Allan Ashby, a leading marine consultants with plenty of international experience.

Braemar Marine has also added staff in the USA. Capt. David Ryan has joined the team in Seattle bringing 24 years of sea-going experience in command and surveying positions. David has in-depth experience in Hull & Machinery and salvage operations as a SCOPIC SCR, project cargo warranty, towage, and voyage warranty surveys, shipyards risk assessment, lay ups and reactivation. 

Chris Jenkins has joined the company's Atlanta head office and brings over nine years of marine claims experience to Braemar Marine. He has most recently been working on major client assignments in Haiti providing much needed local investigation and reporting. Chris has extensive experience in cargo claims working for both large insurers and TPA firms handling accounts for large domestic and international clients.


Nigel Carpenter, CEO based in London, said "Building a global marine surveying business demands investment in the best people; these appointments demonstrate the Group's commitment to such investment."
