Joe Kernan, Vice Admiral, U.S. Navy (Ret.) has recently been appointed to the Board of Advisors of Swiftships Shipbuilders, LLC, a leading supplier of military and commercial watercraft to clients across the globe.

Vice Admiral Kernan (Ret.) served in various leadership positions in the Department of Defense, which included Commanding Officer, SEAL Team Two, Commander, Naval Special Warfare Command, Commander US Fourth Fleet, and Senior Military Assistant to former Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates. Most recently he served as the Deputy Commander of Southern Command, engaging in countering illicit trafficking and building security force capabilities across Latin America and the Caribbean. Prior to joining the Naval Special Warfare community he served as a Surface Warfare officer on a Fast Frigate and a Guided Missile Cruiser. Throughout much of his career, Vice Admiral Kernan operated and trained globally in the maritime areas, gaining extensive experience in small to medium sized craft operations in riverine, coastal and open-ocean environments.

I hope that I can contribute to matching the multitude of needs for quality maritime craft with the extraordinary and renowned products of Swiftships.”

“Admiral Kernan is one of America’s most highly respected military commanders, veterans, and leaders,” said Shehraze Shah, CEO of Swiftships. “It is an honor to have the Admiral join the Swiftships team; his insight and expertise gained throughout his successful military career will no doubt enhance Swiftships’ military programs.”
