Rigging specialists Marine Results have made a key new appointment to their management team. Ben Porteous joins the company as Project Manager, to take charge of planning and control of the major rig work and NDT (non-destructive testing) projects that the company’s teams carry out around the world.
Marine Results is responsible for rig servicing and repairs on many of the world’s largest cruising and racing superyachts. The company’s business has grown significantly in the past few years and Ben’s appointment reflects the diversity of the projects both geographically and technically which have increased in line with the company’s expansion.
