New Marine Propulsion editor has 35 years experienceTaken from: Marine Propulsion & Auxiliary Machinery 2012
Marine Propulsion & Auxiliary Machinery's new editor, Paul Morgan, is an ex-chief engineer with over 35 years of marine industry experience. For the first 25 of those years he was a marine engineer officer in the British merchant navy, and gained his Chief Engineer's (Motor) Certificate. Most of his seatime was spent on oil tankers ranging in size from bunker supply vessels to VLCCs, and on LPG carriers, but he has also worked on LNG carriers, dry cargo ships and ferries. Since coming ashore ten years ago Paul has been a drydock and special projects superintendent in Dubai; technical superintendent; technical manager; and fleet manager in the UK, Cyprus and Switzerland, and general manager of a bunker supply company in Gibraltar.
"We believe that Marine Propulsion's editor must be an engineer," said Riviera Maritime Media's editorial director, Steve Matthews. "It has taken a long time to find the right one, but our patience has paid off and I am delighted to welcome someone of Paul's calibre and experience to Riviera's editorial team. Doug Woodyard, Marine Propulsion's former editor, will continue to make his valuable contributions to the journal, which provides continuity and also means we have two highly experienced marine engineers covering this important sector."
In his spare time Paul is completing an Open University B Eng degree. "I still find the marine industry a fascinating and rewarding business, even after all these years." he said. "I look forward to the challenges offered by such a high profile and respected journal, and to developing its continued success."
Paul Morgan will be attending this year's SMM exhibition in Hamburg, and looks forward to discussing journal developments with readers and supporters there.
