We are delighted to have Mark join the board and to contribute his expertise to the performance and strategy of the association.
“IMCA represents approximately one thousand companies within the marine contracting industry globally, acting as a voice of authority with a wide variety of regulators, client organisations and bodies within the industry,” explains Mark Heine.” I am pleased to be able to contribute to IMCA at board level in setting the future agenda of this important and influential organisation, especially in these changing times for the oil and gas and offshore renewable energy sectors.”
“The establishment of the new IMCA board structure was a result of an 18-month long governance programme, which the membership overwhelmingly endorsed in late 2016,” explains Allen Leatt, Chief Executive of IMCA. “We are delighted to have Mark join the board and to contribute his expertise to the performance and strategy of the association.”
IMCA was founded in 1995 through the merger of the Association of Offshore Diving Contractors (AODC) and the Dynamically Positioned Vessel Owners Association (DPVOA). The association was formed by the leading contractors of the day which have today grown into the globally successful contractors represented by Technip, Saipem, Subsea 7, McDermott, Allseas, and Heerema.
Under their leadership IMCA has become the global authority within the marine contracting industry. The recently extended governing board includes international contractors, with Fugro’s Mark Heine nominated from this important cadre of members
