Tundra Group is delighted to announce the addition of the former Senior Company Security Officer (CSO) of Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement (BSM), Captain Ulrich Ganz, to their Senior Management team.
An Ex-Master and Marine Superintendent with over 30 years’ experience which includes Salvage, Ship Management, Maritime Security, ISM, Incident Investigations, Ransom Negotiation and intervention in drug related vessel detention. Ulrich previously worked for BSM as their global Maritime Security coordinator, in charge of BSM's Anti-Piracy and Security Group, responsible for setting security standards on 350+ Vessels and for the development and implementation of Group Security Procedures and standards, including technical reviews of all vessels and shore-based security plans and disaster recovery plans. He was also responsible for the formulation of vetting standards and vetting of PMSC's to BSM Group standards.
Ulrich first met Tundra MDS almost two years ago when he spent five days vetting them for consideration as a BSM supplier. At that time he was very impressed by their Security Management System, levels of quality, and the professionalism and expertise demonstrated by all of their staff, that he hatched the idea to join Tundra one day.
Tundra MDS’s Managing Director, Lee Rimmer, said: “We are extremely pleased that the person responsible for auditing and vetting PMSC’s for the 2nd largest Ship Management Company in the world has decided to join Tundra MDS, that’s a great testament to the quality of our operations and of our personnel”
Ulrich’s remit will be to help Tundra MDS to maintain its position as the industry leader and he will also oversee the larger Tundra Group’s recent move into Nigeria, having coordinated BSMs security there for the last 2 years.
