Moving rapidly to adapt

Setting up a combined sales and training service is the latest development for Ocean Safety, as the company adapts to new practices in the wake of travel restrictions.

The ‘seamless’ service for new products will be headed up by Steve Bockett who becomes Head of Technical Sales Support. The key internal promotion follows Steve’s ten plus years of management experience at Ocean Safety.  He was originally the Servicing Manager before moving to his most recent role of Training and Technical Services Manager.  The newly created role leads both Ocean Safety’s Internal Sales and Training teams, combining and consolidating personal and company marine safety expertise

Explaining the advantages of combined leadership for both teams, Ocean Safety’s Managing Director Alistair Hackett said, “Our Sales and Training departments can work side by side to deliver a cohesive service to our customers which ensures they receive the best advice and technical knowledge, an approach that will cement our position as recognised marine safety experts.”

Ocean Safety says it is moving rapidly to adapt to new methods brought about as the result of COVID-19 restrictions.  Alistair explained, “While the level and standard of training we deliver to our service stations will not change, Steve will be tasked by our Training Team to lead a modified approach as we invest in the development of new technology to run remote training courses for the foreseeable future.”

Sales Director Mark Acaster commented, “I am thrilled that Steve is taking on this new role.  He has a vast library of marine safety knowledge.  This, coupled with a demonstrable track record in sales prior to joining Ocean Safety, will ensure we are able to offer customers outstanding service and technical product understanding.”
