John Wilson, a figure in Asia's marine surveying and consultancy community, has been recruited by Shipowners Claims Bureau, Inc. (SCB), managers of the American Club. Wilson will join SCB’s Hong Kong office as director – technical services, Asia, towards the end of July. 

Wilson was previously general manager of a marine surveying and consultancy firm, and he also served for over five years as a marine casualty investigator at an international law firm, both based in Hong Kong.  A master mariner whose 15-year seagoing career included service with Shell Tankers, Stena Line and Windstar Cruises, Wilson holds an MSc maritime operations degree and is a fellow of both the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers and the Nautical Institute.  He is also a member of the Hong Kong government’s pilotage advisory committee and pilot examination board.

In his new role at SCB, Wilson will have a diversified brief in support of the American Club’s risk management and loss prevention activities in Asia.  His deep understanding of the technical aspects of vessel operations, together with his extensive knowledge of the regional shipping industry, having worked in Asia since 1997, will add further energy to the club’s service provision and business growth in this important sector of its expanding membership.
