Crowley shakes up marine services organisation

Crowley Maritime Corporation has reorganised its marine services organisation into three business segments: offshore services, ship assist and tanker escort, and engineering services.

Jeff Andreini has been appointed to lead the offshore services division. He rejoins Crowley from Ardent Holdings where he served as the chief financial officer for four years.

Crowley’s offshore business unit includes the company’s ocean-class tugboat and flat-deck barge fleets that provide specialised cargo transportation services for the offshore energy sector as well as the emerging US offshore wind market. 

Porter Sesnon is taking on a leadership position for the group’s ship assist and tanker escort services, which are provided in all major West Coast ports.

For the engineering division, Crowley has tasked Coulston van Gundy with growing the company’s third-party project and construction management services, as well as engineering and design-related offerings provided by both Crowley and its Seattle-based subsidiary Jensen Maritime

Commenting on the appointments, Johan Sperling, vice president of marine services at Crowley, said: “With their leadership and our business structure, we are not only going to provide routine, daily marine services, but we will be able to collaborate to provide custom solutions to maritime-related challenges – whether that is designing, building and operating vessels, installing an offshore wind farm, or towing and positioning a tension-leg platform (TLP) for installation."
