Britannia Maritime Consultants has added Mike Hammond and Stephan Dimke to its team as it expands its offering in the marine casualty response market.
Hammond will head a new claims and insurance department while Dimke will provide technical support for digital navigation issues.
Hammond has worked in marine claims both for shipping companies and more recently as the claims manager for an IG club.
Dimke was formerly at ECDIS pioneer company TRANSAS and is currently the Managing Director of Chartworld Asia Pacific. He said that “now that the roll out of ECDIS is complete, it is reasonable to expect that more incidents at sea could be related to the misuse of navigational equipment. There is a natural synergy with Britannia, who are often involved in incident investigations and reconstructions. I look forward to providing knowledge to the team and acting as an expert witness on complicated cases.”
