Everyone at Riviera Maritime Media is very sorry to learn of the passing of our friend and former colleague, Kevin Tester.

After a short battle with cancer, Kevin passed away peacefully last Friday morning, with his family by his side.

Kevin was a fluent Japanese speaker and started his maritime career as a public relations officer with the Japan External Trade Organisation in London, before establishing himself as an exceptional writer in the fields of maritime electronics, digitalisation and regulatory compliance. From 2005 onwards, Kevin held writing and editing posts with several leading maritime publishers, including IMarEST and Riviera where he was editor of our Marine Electronics & Communications magazine from October 2007 to January 2010.

From 2016, Kevin pursued a freelance career, working as a consultant for IMarEST and joining the team at JLA Media as a writer, where his perceptive contributions were highly valued by clients including ClassNK, Wallem, ABB, GTMaritime and One Sea.

Kevin was a well-known and respected individual in the maritime industry who will be sorely missed.

For those wishing to make a memorial contribution, the family has suggested that the following might be considered:

Our thoughts and prayers are with Kevin’s family.
