TITAN Salvage, Crowley Maritime Corporation’s marine salvage, emergency response and wreck removal company based in Houston, Texas, announce that Capt. Ajay Prasad has joined its leadership team as general manager, Southeast Asia.

TITAN say that the veteran mariner, who started his career at sea over 20 years ago, will be domiciled in their Singapore office, reporting to TITAN’s Chris Peterson, vice president, and will oversee the company’s business and operational activities in Southeast Asia, Australia, the Pacific Rim and Middle East.

“Captain Prasad’s exemplary background in operations; HSE; salvage; and marine management, will further strengthen Titan’s Southeast Asia, Pacific Rim and global presence,” said Peterson. “He is a great addition to our Singapore-based team and we are delighted to have him join TITAN and Crowley.”

Capt. Prasad, add TITAN, has gained considerable industry insight throughout his career. He has worked together with technical ship managers overseeing chemical and gas tankers in commercial, operational and health, safety and environmental (HSE) roles, in addition to leading numerous investigations into serious maritime disasters and vessel casualties. With a master’s in business administration from INSEAD, widely considered one of the world’s finest business schools, Capt. Prasad brings both a wealth of managerial experience and operational knowledge to TITAN. He was instrumental in implementing informative, in-house training and consultancy programs with his previous employers, and has developed several workshops and training seminars for senior managers across the industry.
