Hamish PetersenChairperson: Hamish Petersen

Hamish was appointed Chairman of the signatories' group in April 2009, following in the footsteps of Colin Gibson of Subsea 7.

Hamish is the founder, owner and Managing Director of KD Marine and has held various post in the diving industry over the past 44 years including Diver, Equipment Manager, Project Manager and Regional Manager of an international underwater contractor. He has been involved in almost every type of diving activity in many parts of the world (and claims to have the proverbial T-shirt).

Hamish is passionate about people issues and sees it as one of the fundamental elements of our business. He has personal experience of what does and does not work for the workforce and the employers alike and looks forward to moving the ODIA into a new era of industrial relations and assisting all the stakeholders to benefit from their participation.
