Harvey Gulf makes key hire to grow subsea businessWritten by Nick Blenkey
Harvey Gulf International Marine CEO Shane Guidry is looking to grow the company’s subsea business and has hired John Dunn as Vice President of Sub-Sea Vessel Operations.
Dunn, who was formerly with Oceaneering, is to assemble and manage a highly experienced subsea vessel management team.
Prior to Oceaneering, Dunn was the director of operations at Meridian Ocean Services, a subsea service provider acquired by Oceaneering in 2016. A graduate of Massachusetts Maritime Academy, he holds an unlimited USCG chief engineer’s license and has worked for Chevron Shipping’s tanker and FPSO fleets.
“I’m very happy to welcome John to my executive management team,” said Guidry. “John spent the last three years overseeing chartered vessel fleet operations and marine assurance at Oceaneering. He brings with him a world of subsea knowledge and experience that we absolutely intend to build on. John will be working very closely with our subsea partners, customers and crews. He will manage operations and technical sales of Harvey’s four subsea vessels, and also look for additional vessels to purchase in order to further enhance our global business.”
“I am very excited about the opportunity to join Harvey Gulf and work with Mr. Guidry and his exceptional team,” said Dunn. “It’s a unique and exciting challenge to manage his high spec vessels and build a forward-looking team that can grow and service our clients’ current and future needs worldwide.”
