Norman Finlay, a highly respected marine surveyor and the founder of the National Workboat Association (NWA), has been awarded an MBE for ‘Services to UK Shipping’. Following the Lifetime Achievement award presented to Mr Finlay at Seawork in 2013, this MBE is further recognition of the dedication and commitment he has shown, throughout a long and illustrious career, to the maritime and workboat industries.
Following on from the Members Survey earlier this year, we have been working on refining the ways in which we communicate with our members – and updating our newsletter has been a key element of this. To ensure that we’re providing a service that best meets your needs and interests, we’d like to give you the opportunity to provide your feedback.
In our final ‘Member Profile’ of 2017, we catch up with Dave McNaughtan, General Manager at Delta Marine, for his view on where opportunities lie for growth in the marine energy sector.
