Braemar names regional director

February 1 - Braemar (incorporating The Salvage Association) has appointed Richard Gayton to the key role of regional director, Americas.

An official statement says he will take responsibility for strengthening and growing Braemar's surveyor presence in this important region and for engaging more directly with the local New York market, focusing on its traditional hull & machinery business and also on the marine consultancy services provided to P&I clubs and marine lawyers. 

"As a base to service both the Americas region and the wider global market, New York has been a key location for our business since we first opened an office in the city 100 years ago," said Nigel Clark, managing director of Braemar (incorporating The Salvage Association). "Richard is ideally suited to take forward our strategy in this area and his appointment represents a move to the next stage of the company's development. I'm delighted we have been able to secure the services of such an able and experienced marine professional for one of our most senior positions."

Richard joins Braemar (incorporating The Salvage Association) from The American P&I Club where he was vice president/principal surveyor of its Surveys and Technical Services Department. Prior to that he worked as a staff surveyor with The Salvage Association based in the New York office and will therefore bring to the role an impressive combination of Salvage Association culture, hull and machinery expertise and experience of working with a major P&I Club.
