18 October 2021 – London’s leading River Bus operator, Uber Boat by Thames Clippers (www.uberboatbythamesclippers.com), has created a new role within its business, and hired a health, safety, environment & quality (HSQE) manager. Gilmark D Mello joins the London transport operator with a focus on minimising the environmental impact of the business processes and incrementally reducing its carbon footprint through process improvements, environmentally sustainable products and decarbonisation. 

Gilmark joins Uber Boat by Thames Clippers from Seaspan Corporation, bringing with him a strong background in the marine industry as a chief engineer and business process transformation consultant for the large shipping company that is the worldwide leader in independent containership management and ownership.

Geoff Symonds, chief operating officer, Uber Boat by Thames Clippers said: 

“We are very focused on improving the sustainability of our business and ensuring our developments in that area are beneficial for the marine sector as a whole. We’re excited to have brought Gilmark into the business in this newly created role; it demonstrates just how seriously we take our commitment to supporting the sustainable growth of infrastructure and economic development on and around the river Thames. 

“This hire coincides with the news of our award by the Department for Transport, via Innovate UK, for funding to support three projects to research and develop green river transport for the future. Gilmark will be working closely with the teams to develop these projects; it’s an incredibly exciting time for the business and we’re thrilled to have him on board.”
