Jensen Maritime, Crowley Maritime Corp.’s Seattle-based naval architecture and marine engineering company, continues its hiring boom with the recent addition of eight new naval architecture, marine engineering and administrative professionals in the company’s Seattle, New Orleans and Jacksonville offices. The new hires bring additional expertise in the fields of naval architecture, marine and electrical engineering, marine construction and accounting, while enhancing Jensen’s newest service offerings – production and electrical engineering and construction management, all of which were added to the company’s portfolio in 2012.

“Jensen’s tremendous growth continues as a result of the careful joint planning of Jensen and our parent company, Crowley, which has grown consistently and strategically for more than 120 years,” said Johan Sperling, vice president, Jensen Maritime. “These talented new employees will contribute in their own unique ways, allowing us to operate as a full-service firm that provides superior services to virtually any customer. We welcome these hires and look forward to what they will bring to the team.”

Jensen’s new team members include Brig Henry, marine engineer; Jean Hays, manager, accounting; Jonathan Smith, director, new construction; Thomas Gurnik, senior naval architect; George Hafferty, electrical engineer; Paul Robles and Jeffery Martel, naval architects; and Lisa Vogt, administrator.

In Seattle, reporting to Sperling, are Henry and Hays. While Henry joins the team with more than 20 years of outside experience in vessel operations, project management and marine engineering, Hays makes the transition from Crowley to Jensen. Hays has 27 years of experienced leadership in finance and accounting and will play a key role in defining Jensen’s financial strategy while also tracking project performance.

Smith has also transitioned from Crowley to Jensen, bringing 35 years of extensive experience in vessel maintenance, dry docking, module load-out and vessel construction. He remains domiciled in Jacksonville and now reports to Ray Martus, vice president, vessel management.

Gurnik, Hafferty and Robles all join the company’s News Orleans office reporting to Sergio Fifi, general manager. Gurnik brings 30 years of comprehensive vessel design and construction experience to Jensen while Hafferty joins Jensen with extensive experience as an electronic systems analyst and integrator with technical training in marine and electrical engineering for both U.S. Naval and commercial vessels. Robles joins Jensen with skills in structural finite element analysis and hydrodynamics and received his master’s degree in naval architecture and marine engineering.

Martel joins Jensen’s Seattle office as a naval architect, reporting to Sean Testa, manager, engineering design. In his new role, he will assist the stability team as it performs inclines and calculates stability on all types of workboats.

Finally, Vogt joins Jensen’s Seattle office as an administrator, reporting to Dan Babcock, manager, business development. She is responsible for monitoring Jensen’s project management procedures while also supporting the business development and project management teams.

Since August 2012, Jensen has hired more than 25 engineers, architects and other specialists to assist with customer projects in all three company locations, Seattle (headquarters), New Orleans and Jacksonville.
