The move comes as CEO, Joshua Holden, and serial entrepreneur, Mark Childs, join forces to boost the company’s foothold in the marine recruitment industry. Part of a wider strategic growth plan, the board believe this move “will further inspire trust in the brand and better represent the talented individuals [they] have on [their] database”.
Holden commented “With new plans for growth in place and an exciting year ahead, we are pleased to announce Mark Childs’ new appointment to the board of Directors at IMR”.
“This marks a great step forward in becoming a stronger and more focused team ahead of plans to expand our capacity, service quality levels and client base for the future. IMR has known Mark personally and professionally for several years and welcome his knowledge and experience of marine operations to compliment and enhance the work already being undertaken by the team.”
Childs added “This is a really exciting opportunity, not only for myself and IMR, but yacht builders, charter managers and boat yards alike. IMR’s culture of excellence and continuous development puts the team lightyears ahead of competitors as we ensure all our staff share the same enthusiasm for attention to detail, right from stage one in our recruitment process.”
International Marine Recruitment is now operating from Newcastle upon Tyne in the United Kingdom, offering a diverse team of polishers, painters, engineers and specialists for simple labour supply, or full turnkey solutions anywhere in the world.
