Singapore: Survival Craft Inspectorate (SCI) has announced the appointment of Mohit Batra as managing director for Asia and Australasia. There is an expected increase in global demand for the company’s services as the clock ticks towards the July 1 deadline of MSC.1.Circ.1392, and owners gear up to replace existing lifeboat hooks that do not comply with the revised requirements of SOLAS/LSA Code.
Mohit comes to Survival Craft with a strong network and rich background in the maritime industry, having spent 12 years at sea and the last 10 years ashore in senior positions with top tier multinationals including most recently American Bureau of Shipping where he was heading up the Strategy and Business Development efforts for Greater China Division. He is a master mariner and holds an MBA from Oxford University. [29/05/14]
