Glosten Names New President

By Mark Edward Nero

Seattle-based consulting naval architecture and marine engineering consultancy Glosten on April 7 announced the appointment of longtime employee John Springer as the company’s president.
Springer, who is Glosten’s fifth president since the firm’s founding in 1958, will have direct responsibility for strategic growth, business direction and client service.

Springer has thus far spent 29 years with the firm. He managed Glosten’s Naval Architecture Group from 1996 to 2003, served as operations director from 2004 to 2009, and most recently served on the executive management team.

“I’m honored to serve Glosten in this new role of shaping the firm’s growth in the coming years,” he said in a prepared statement, “and I am so very fortunate to have the incredible foundation … to build on.”

Springer takes over the role from Glosten’s fourth president, John “Jay” Edgar.

“Leading Glosten has been a rewarding opportunity,” said Edgar, who is now Glosten’s Director of Research and Development. “I’m pleased to support John and the entire Glosten team as we reach new heights in delivering excellence to our clients.”

Glosten, founded in 1958, specializes in naval architecture, ocean engineering & analysis, marine engineering, electrical engineering, and detail/production design.

Last year, Glosten acquired Noise Control Engineering, an acoustical and structural engineering consultancy specializing in noise and vibration measurement and control for marine, industrial, commercial and military applications.
