Seaspan Marine Appoints New President

By Mark Edward Nero

Vancouver, British Columbia-based transportation company Seaspan Marine announced May 19 that Bart Reynolds has joined the company as president.

Reynolds joins Seaspan with more than 20 years of experience in positions of leadership and senior management, with the last 15 years consisting of positions in the offshore supply boat business in the United States, West Africa, the Mediterranean and Latin America.

He most recently served as Vice President, Americas at GulfMark Offshore, a company operating 72 offshore vessels in various markets around the world. Prior to that, he worked for offshore supply vessel company Tidewater Marine as an area manager.

Seaspan says that in his new role, Reynolds is expected to provide vision, leadership and direction for the company’s Marine Division. A significant part of his role, according to the company, will involve developing strategies and providing leadership around building exceptional customer relations, plus creating longstanding positive employee and union relationships.

In addition, Seaspan says, Reynolds will “promote and strengthen Seaspan Marine’s external reputation” through industry-wide representation and marine community involvement.

“We performed an exhaustive search across North America to find a leader with Bart’s world-class experience and track record of success, and I am thrilled to welcome him to the Seaspan family,” Seaspan CEO Jonathan Whitworth said.
