Ocean Specialists, Inc. (OSI), a global provider of specialized subsea technical services and marine operations, today announced the appointment of Perry Wright to the position of Vice President and General Manager. Mr. Wright’s immediate focus will be to build upon OSI’s 20-year track record of delivering over 200 international projects for clients in the telecom and offshore energy markets by extending OSI’s engineering and project management capabilities to several new key target sectors in the ocean industries.
The announcement is in line with OSI’s continued strategic growth enabling OSI to offer an integrated approach to marine operations and custom subsea engineering. “Perry’s appointment aligns with OSI’s strategy to apply our corporate capabilities to our growing defense portfolio,” said Dan McLeod, VP of Goverment and Defense Markets.
“We are delighted to announce the appointment of Perry to the position of Vice President and General Manager of OSI,” said OSI President Jim Byous. “Over the past 12 years, Perry has played a foundational role in many of OSI’s most important projects and has led by example in terms of delivering technical expertise and disciplined project management to OSI partners and customers alike. We look forward to Perry’s leadership as OSI moves into new markets and technical developments in the coming years.”
Perry joined OSI in 2009 and has a proven track record of developing long-term relationships with global oil and gas and telecom operators. Perry’s management specifically focused on the design, planning, installation, and delivery of critical subsea infrastructure, in particular submarine fiber optic networks, resulting in additional value for the owner. His new role, based out of OSI’s global headquarters in Stuart, FL, will see him manage a growing number of multi-stakeholder, cross-border initiatives designed to field turnkey solutions for more complex subsea products and services.
