Our principal surveyor is Capt. Jerome Pereira. He has sailed on a variety of modern ships and has extensive shipboard experience. Since quitting active sailing, he has been involved with all aspects of Marine Surveying and consultancy since 1990. He has previously been a senior surveyor with Toplis and Harding Inc., and more recently, as a vice president/senior surveyor with MMK/CSL.

In between he has also been a commercial operations manager with Eastwind Maritime, New York, for 13 years. During this time he was responsible for the commercial operation of a fleet of ships. He is therefore acutely aware of the commercial sensitivities, and interests of ship-owners, as well as all other parties in today’s competitive, and budget driven world of commercial shipping.
