Bud Streeter is the new Vice President and Marine Manager for the United States, including responsibility for Panama, Mexico, and the Caribbean. Previously he was Lloyd’s Register’s Marine Manager Canada and, for the immediate future, he will retain his Canadian responsibilities. Bud has more than 40 years of experience in marine engineering, maritime security, and industry legislative affairs. He takes over from Graham Brown who retired at the end of November 2009 after 28 years of service.
Based in Lloyd’s Register North America’s Fort Lauderdale office, Streeter will lead the U.S. marine team in delivering comprehensive solutions to the complex business and technical challenges that shipowners and operators in all sectors are currently facing. “Our clients in the bulk carrier, tanker, container, and passenger-ship sectors are all dealing with a rapidly evolving landscape,” said Streeter. “Whether seeking to operate in increasingly demanding physical environments, reducing emissions, lowering operating costs or addressing social issues such as sustainability and organizational integrity, our clients are looking to us for thought leadership as well as effective service delivery.”
Streeter’s career experience includes executive positions at Marine Atlantic Inc. and Transport Canada, where he headed Canada’s delegation to various committees of the International Maritime Organization and acted as administrator of the program for the Arctic Water Pollution Prevention Act. Streeter began his career at the Canadian Coast Guard College in 1969 as an engineering cadet. After obtaining his diploma in Marine Engineering, he sailed on various government and commercial ships and then served as an instructor at the Coast Guard College. Executive positions at a number of marine organizations followed, and Streeter joined Lloyd’s Register in April 2002. He served as a member of the Canadian Advisory Council on National Security from its inception in 2005 until August 2009. It is intended that a new appointment for Marine Manager, Canada will be made.
