Seacor Annonces Executive changes

Thursday, September 08, 2005
SEACOR Holdings Inc. (NYSE: CKH) announced that Randall Blank, currently SEACOR's Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer, and Secretary, will assume full-time responsibility as President and CEO of its environmental division, SEACOR Environmental Services Inc. ("SES"), and that Richard Ryan will assume the position of Chief Financial Officer for SEACOR. Alice Gran, SEACOR's Senior Vice President and General Counsel, will become Corporate Secretary. Charles Fabrikant, Chairman and CEO of SEACOR, remarked, "Ran and I have worked together for the past 21 years and co-founded SEACOR in 1989. He has been instrumental in every transaction that has made the Company what it has become today. For the past three years, Ran has also overseen the growth of our environmental unit, primarily consisting of the National Response Corporation and The O'Brien's Group, and has been the driving force in developing its international presence. Our goal is to grow our environmental business more aggressively. Ran has a wealth of experience in mergers and acquisitions, and is the ideal leader to capitalize on SES' potential. We are also excited about the prospects for Applied Process Technology, Inc., a SEACOR investment which provides innovative, waste-free technologies for clean water. Fortunately, we have depth in management allowing us to fill Ran's shoes by bringing in a highly qualified individual who has been with us almost 10 years and is familiar with our culture. Richard Ryan also headed the transition team responsible for integrating Seabulk and SEACOR." Mr. Ryan started his career as a certified accountant in the UK Atomic Energy Authority. He has 28 years of experience in the offshore industry, and has worked in Houston, Singapore, France and the United Kingdom. Mr. Ryan, who most recently served as SEACOR Marine International's Chief Operating Officer, will be succeeded in that role by Clyde Camburn, who has served as international controller for the offshore marine group for the last three years. In a related executive change, Matthew Cenac, currently SEACOR's Controller, will become SEACOR's Chief Accounting Officer and will relocate to Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Lenny Dantin, currently Vice President and Chief Accounting Officer, will remain in the Company's Morgan City, Louisiana office and assist with other financial matters.
