Andrew Squire, Chief Executive of London Offshore Consultants (LOC) welcomed Captain Nick Haslam to the newly created Board position of Group Director, Shipping Services.

"Nick’s crucial new global role will involve working closely with the four regional directors in developing shipping services within the LOC Group," Squire explained. "These will include traditional P&I activities, hull and machinery work and new business streams."

Captain Haslam joined LOC in 1997, was a Director with LOC London prior to taking up the position of Managing Director of LOC in Singapore in 2008, developing the office into the LOC Group’s second largest of 27 worldwide offices.

Haslam is an expert in major marine casualties, particularly salvage and wreck removal, is on the Lloyds of London panel of Special Casualty Representatives (SCR) and has attended a number of high-profile cases globally. He has been appointed as expert witness in Singapore, the U.K., Chile, and Malaysia.

Captain Haslam will remain stationed in Singapore and base his global operation from there.

Rutger Bierman has taken over as Managing Director of LOC Singapore.

Jon Walker, LOC Group’s Regional Director for Asia/Australia, said “I am delighted Rutger has taken the reins at LOC Singapore, the hub office for this region and, as such, a critical role. I know Rutger will continue to develop the office for the benefit of both LOC in Asia/Australia and globally and to continue providing the highest standard of service to our clients.”

Captain Bierman joined LOC Singapore in 2006 and has been the Deputy Managing Director since 2011. He has established a reputation for dealing with varied matters such as marine casualties, expert witness, energy warranty and vessel assurance, and has focussed keenly on the development of LOC’s extensive Dynamic Positioning (DP) consultancy capability.
