John Poulson rejoins the American Club

POULSON---2012John Poulson is rejoining the management team of the American P&I Club on February 1 as vice president, principal surveyor and head of the survey and technical department.

He worked with the club's managers for several years in the middle of the last decade before moving to what is nowGL Noble Denton (as it is now), New York, where he had oversight and responsibility for that company's operations throughout the Americas.

In a seagoing career with leading British and German shipowners, Mr. Poulson  reached the position of chief engineer at the age of 28. Coming ashore, he worked for many years for the Salvage Association and for BMT Salvage Ltd., in the U.K., continental Europe and the U.S. He has been based in New York for nearly 20 years, and was chairman of the American Association of Average Adjusters in 2006.

Joe Hughes, Chairman and CEO  of Shipowners Claims Bureau Inc., the managers, said they were delighted to welcome back such a well-known and respected member of the international surveying/technical community.

Mr. Poulson will now be responsible for the implementation and co-ordination of the American Club's extensive survey, loss prevention, advisory and technical activities.

The club's managers also report the departure of Captain Richard J. Gayton from the New York office. He is moving to a senior managerial position with the Braemar Group, though he is expected to maintain connections with the club, its members and the managers in his new sphere of operations.
