Marine consulting and safety specialists AMS Global Group has announced the appointment of a new board director as it focuses on growth markets and record revenues.

The Aberdeen-based group said Graeme Reid brings with him a wealth of management and board experience in the marine consulting market. Previous roles he has held include director-level positions at a number of well-known organisations including Maritime Assurance & Consulting Ltd, which Reid founded in 2010.

Graeme Reid said:

“I’m excited to be joining the board of AMS Global Group and to be working alongside the existing board and management team to continue development of the group in both the Marine Consulting and Safety spaces. The group is focusing on providing an independent, high quality service for a competitive price which can be achieved by ensuring the quality of our resources, the speed of our response to client demands and, at the same time, closely managing our overheads.”

Neil Carr, director, AMS Global Group said:

“We’re delighted to announce that Graeme has joined our board and we look forward to what the future holds. As a group, we are in a great position to move forward despite the effects that lockdown and oil price has had on the market. We continue to offer a wide range of marine consulting services and this is set to expand. Our safety business has seen strong growth as we’ve assisted clients navigate their way through the lockdown period with our specialist disinfection and decontamination division. This will be equally important as we see lockdown measures starting to ease and clients assessing their return to a new normal.”

The AMS Global Group consists of subsidiary companies Aberdeen Marine Surveyors Ltd and AMS Safety Ltd. The group has 24 employees, with additional expertise provided by over 11 associate consultants to service growing demand. The group which was founded in 2012, is on target for a record year of revenue growth in 2020, with bases in Aberdeen, Great Yarmouth, Invergordon, Newcastle and Peterhead.
