Bollinger Shipyards’ Chairman and CEO Donald “Boysie” Bollinger announced the appointments of Chris Bollinger as President and Ben Bordelon as Chief Operating Officer of Bollinger Shipyards, effective August 29, 2013.

“As an ongoing part of my personal transition plan and long-term growth strategy for Bollinger Shipyards, I am pleased to announce the appointment of Chris Bollinger as our company's new President. His proven leadership, managerial skills, and strategic vision make him the perfect choice to lead Bollinger to a successful future. Chris will be responsible for implementing the company’s vision through the management of all operational and administrative functions of the business. His total commitment to safety, attention to quality, focus on environmental responsibility, and steadfast dedication to the highest ethical standards is what sets us apart from all others.”

“I am pleased to take on my new role as President of Bollinger Shipyards, carrying on the traditions and culture set forth by my father and grandfather,” Chris said. “I am proud to continue working with the most dedicated and talented group of shipbuilders in furthering Bollinger’s leadership in the marketplace.”

Chris has been employed at Bollinger since 1993 and has held numerous managerial and leadership positions, including most recently serving as the company’s Executive Vice President of New Construction. He will continue to serve on the company’s Board of Directors.

My grandfather started the shipyard in 1946 and set a foundation for us to grow into what we are today. I am excited to follow in his and my Uncle's footsteps to continue to expand our business by responding to our customers needs, working efficiently and safely, and delivering the highest quality product with our great workforce," Ben said.
