Samina Mahmood, former commercial manager for TITAN Salvage, has been appointed manager for Marine Response Alliance, an association of U.S. emergency responders providing OPA 90 Salvage Marine Firefighting (SMFF).

 

MRA, founded in 1994, combines experts in all facets of emergency response with salvage, firefighting and lightering equipment in all Captain of the Port Zones. Alliance members include TITAN, Crowley, Marine Pollution Control and McAllister Towing & Transportation.

Mahmood will lead the MRA administrative team and work closely with the alliance’s emergency response center and the U.S.-based emergency response and salvage team.

Prior to joining TITAN and the MRA, Mahmood worked for Crowley Maritime Corp., TITAN’s parent company, servicing oil and gas projects around the world. Recently she accepted on behalf of TITAN and MRA the Defense Logistics Agency’s “Hurricane Sandy Award” at the Business Alliance Awards in Virginia, for the team’s “unprecedented support” following the storm that devastated much of the Northeastern coast in late October 2012.
