Kevin Tester

It is with deep sadness that we are announcing the passing of our friend and colleague, Kevin Tester. After a short battle with cancer, Kevin passed away peacefully last Friday morning, with his family by his side. 

Many of you will have known Kevin for many years through his editorial and consultancy work across the maritime industry. A fluent Japanese speaker, Kevin 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, Riviera Maritime Media and Caspian Media. 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.  

A well-known and respected individual in the maritime industry, Kevin was also a much loved and valued member of our team 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.
