The Maritime and Coastguard Agency announced the appointment of Philip Naylor as the new Director of Maritime Services. This post is responsible for ensuring the safety and quality of seafarers and ships under the Red Ensign and delivering emergency response, survey and inspections services.

Naylor is currently General Manager for Fleet Marine and Shore Operations for Carnival UK. He served as a Deck Officer on tankers, ferries and sail training vessels before joining the cruise industry in 1986. Here he was responsible for the worldwide operation of 12 cruise ships, as well as major developments ashore in the Port of  Southampton. He has also led Carnival's emergency response organisation.

After secondary and pre-sea education at the London Nautical School Naylor went to sea as a deck cadet trainee navigating officer and studied at Warsash Nautical College for his foreign-going Master Mariner's certificate. He spent time of tankers, ferries and sail training vessels before joining the cruise industry in 1986. In addition to his  seafarer's qualifications Philip has a law degree and a MBA.

Peter Cardy, the MCA's chief executive, said "It has been a long search to find the right person with the stature and experience and Philip has both. This is one of the most demanding jobs in the UK maritime sector, with wide-ranging responsibilities for the safety of ships and seafarers and the sea itself. My team and I are looking forward to welcoming Philip on board.'

Nayor will be supported by Paul Coley, who heads the Ships and Seafarers aspects of Maritime Services and by Rod Johnson who heads up coastal safety including HM Coastguard.
