Commenting on today’s announcement, Mr. John Gellert, Chief Executive Officer, said, “On behalf of the entire organisation, I thank Matt for the significant time and effort he expended as the Company transitioned following its spin-off from SEACOR Holdings, and for his many years of service with the SEACOR organisation. We appreciate the leadership and dedication he exhibited during this time and wish him every success in the future.
We are pleased to have Jesús transition to the Chief Financial Officer position. Over the last 10 years, Jesús has been an integral part of all aspects of our business. Most recently, Jesús led the successful closing of the Falcon Global transaction and was a key member of the team developing our plans for participating in the offshore windfarm industry in the U.S., culminating in our announcement last week of a cooperation agreement with Fred. Olsen Windcarrier. I look forward to actively pursuing the Company’s long-term strategy with him and his team and building upon the positive momentum of the Company.
We believe that our executive leadership team, which we expect to soon be enhanced with the appointment of an experienced, highly qualified principal accounting officer, is well-positioned for future success, and I look forward to the continued evolution of our organisation.”
