Foss Unveils New Management Structure

Thursday, August 07, 2008

The Foss Maritime Company has created three new management positions aimed at strengthening its safety, compliance and environmental programs.

Frank Williamson has been promoted to vice president, safety, quality and general counsel. Formerly Foss’ general counsel, Williamson will take on new responsibilities in health, safety, compliance and quality assurance. He will oversee the team responsible for developing and implementing safety and environmental programs.

Susan Hayman, who spearheaded the development of Foss’ hybrid-powered, low-emissions tug due to enter service this fall, will become vice president for environmental and corporate development. In this role, she will focus on strategic planning, including environmental initiatives for both Foss and parent company, Marine Resources Group. She was formerly Foss’ vice president, health, safety, quality and environment.

John Marcantonio has been promoted to marine assurance manager and will lead an operations team that will support Foss mariners in executing safety programs, as well as investigating and reporting accidents. Marcantonio reports to Scott Merritt, senior vice president of operations.

Gary C. Faber, Foss President and Chief Operating Officer, called the creation of the positions a logical step for a company where safety and environmental excellence have become the top priorities.
