Guardian Maritime Ltd is delighted to announce the appointment of Jean Winfield as its new Marketing Director, strengthening their worldwide management team.
Jean has more than 20 years’ experience in PR & marketing, with the last 15 years being specifically in maritime having been involved with many shipping companies and events across the globe. She joins Guardian Maritime’s board having already worked with the company through her PR & marketing company Jeanius Consulting and is delighted to take on the new additional role.
“From the very first time I saw GUARDIAN™ I knew it was both a product and a company I would like to work with, a company passionate about tackling piracy and safeguarding seafarers. I am looking forward to working with the sales team to promote and extend GUARDIAN’s reach, continuing to provide ships with both a highly visual deterrent as well as a practical and cost effective anti-piracy system. GUARDIAN is both safe and easy for crew to use, meaning no more cuts from razor wire and is environmentally friendly by being recyclable too.”
The first real alternative to razor wire, GUARDIAN works by covering a ship’s safety rails with a specially designed barrier. Once installed, GUARDIAN provides a highly visible, robust and simple way of making access to ship or rig virtually impossible. The system is currently protecting some of the world’s biggest fleets including CMA-CGM, Maersk, BW Tankers as well as being used to protect offshore rigs and drilling ships.
Welcoming her appointment, David Stevens, Guardian Maritime’s Sales Director, said: “I am delighted that Jean has joined our team and look forward to seeing her continue to drive the business forward. GUARDIAN anti-piracy barriers ensure shipping and more importantly seafarers are protected while operating in high risk areas. ”
