"Here at Bollinger Shipyards, we are excited for the future of our company," said President and CEO Ben Bordelon. "We will be strengthening our position in the market by developing our team from within and capitalizing on the talents of our proven leadership group.

Tim Martinez has accepted the position of Executive Vice President of the Repair Division, Scott Theriot has been promoted to Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing and Corey Phelps has accepted the position of General Manager of Bollinger Morgan City (BMC) and Bollinger Amelia Repair (BAR).
Tim Martinez began his Bollinger career in 1996 and has steadily assumed roles of increasing responsibility since. In 2006, Mr. Martinez was promoted to Division General Manager for Bollinger Morgan City (BMC), and assumed responsibility for Bollinger Amelia Repair (BAR) in 2008. He was named Vice President and General Manager of BMC and BAR in 2012.

"Scott brings to the table proven leadership and a strong knowledge of the company's markets for both repair and new construction that will benefit and support marketing and customer relations efforts," notes the Bollinger announcement.
Corey Phelps joined Bollinger in 2003 as an Assistant Estimating/Project Coordinator and has since risen steadily through the ranks. In 2012, he was promoted to Operations Manager for BMC and BAR, a position that has prepared him well for his new opportunity.
"Corey's proven ability to manage multiple projects and priorities will serve him well as he takes his new leadership role with the repair divisions in Amelia," says Bollinger.
