Friday, November 30, 2012

Jensen Maritime Consultants, Crowley Maritime Corporation’s naval architecture and marine engineering firm, continues to grow its new office in the New Orleans business district with the hiring of Senior Administrator Lauren Gulkus. Reporting to General Manager Sergio Fifi, she is the latest addition in a string of recent hires positioned to fully staff this new office with industry leading expertise.


In her new role, Gulkus will be responsible for project and departmental administrative duties, while also assisting in the development and documentation of business procedures.  She will also support Jensen’s ongoing sales and marketing efforts.


“We are aggressively continuing the growth of our New Orleans office through the hiring of skilled professionals like Gulkus,” said Fifi. “She will be instrumental in office and administrative operations that will further our ability to do what we do best – vessel designs that are efficient to build and extraordinary to operate.”


Gulkus graduated from Arcadia University with a bachelor’s of arts in chemistry and biology.  Before joining Jensen, she worked as an operations coordinator at Toxic Litigation Group, a customs compliance associate at Teva Pharmaceuticals USA and a customer service associate at Philadelphia Insurance Companies.


Seattle-based Jensen, which also has an East Coast office in Jacksonville, Fla., announced the establishment of a third office in New Orleans this past summer at 1515 Poydras Street, Suite 2030. The company plans to hire up to 10 highly talented employees for a variety of positions in the new office. Interested job seekers should visit www.jensenmaritime.com/careers for more information.


Jensen’s strategic third office in New Orleans places the company in close proximity to many important customers and shipyards in the U.S. Gulf, as well as to Crowley’s Houston-based solutions group, a Project Management Organization (PMOrg). Solutions provides marine project management services as a prime contractor for the energy and resource extraction industries. Customers who will benefit from Jensen’s presence in the U.S. Gulf include regional shipyards and local operators, as well as clients in the offshore oil and gas, energy, fishing, workboat and brown-water industries.
