Lloyd’s Register has announced the appointment of experienced marine leader, Mark Darley, in the role of Americas regional marine manager and president of Lloyd’s Register North America (LRNA).
In his new position, Mark will be responsible for leading the company’s marine business for the Americas region, overseeing commercial and business planning, and developing a strategy to improve the company’s competitive position within the region. He will coordinate with the Marine Group in London, and is responsible for achieving operational goals for safety, quality and financial performance in the Americas.
Darley said of his new position, “I have spent the last few weeks understanding more about our people, and meeting our clients across the Americas. It is clear to me that we have a world-class team internally, as well as great potential to build on and grow our relationships and services to clients within the region.
“Besides our core classification business, we are dedicated to supporting the development of new technologies and innovations that will play a vital role in the immediate and long-term future of shipping throughout the Americas. My focus is to ensure that Lloyd’s Register Americas meet or exceed our client’s expectations with service innovation and operational excellence in a way more strategically aligned to our clients current and future business challenges.”
Darley has been working with Lloyd’s Register for the last 15 years in various operational and business roles across global regions before assuming his new position last month, replacing Tim Protheroe, who will continue as the operations director for the Lloyd’s Register Americas region.
