Sea Alarm is pleased to announce that Daniela Barreras Biesot joined our team in August as a Senior Technical Advisor. Daniela is currently replacing Saskia Sessions-Puplett, who is on maternity leave.
Sea Alarm is pleased to announce that OSRL’s Daniela Barreras Biesot will be working from our office. In addition to her OSRL work, Daniela has been seconded to us two days a week during Saskia’s maternity leave.
Claude Velter, who has worked half time for Sea Alarm since 2012, has left his position as Senior Technical Advisor as of 1 May 2015 to take on an expanded role at the Wildlife Rescue Centre Ostend (WRCO).
Saskia Sessions, Senior Technical Advisor, marked her fifth anniversary with Sea Alarm in October and Paul Kelway, Global Preparedness Coordinator, is now settled in our Brussels office.
We are sorry to announce that our Office Manager, Joy Bruce-Radcliffe, is leaving. Joy joined Sea Alarm in January of 2013, bringing her financial and administrative skills to our team and implementing much needed, more efficient office systems and procedures.
Sea Alarm is pleased to introduce Paul Kelway as our new Global Preparedness Coordinator. Paul comes to Sea Alarm with a strong background in international oil spill response work. As Emergency Relief Manager for International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW)’s Oiled Wildlife Division and then as Executive Director at International Bird Rescue (IBR), Paul has worked closely with many key organisations and individuals in the oiled wildlife response field.
2012 saw changes to the Sea Alarm Board of Directors, while regular meetings with Oil Spill Response Limited, a key Sea Alarm partner, enhanced the two organisations’ cooperative efforts.
In April Sea Alarm sadly had to say goodbye to Roser Gasol. Roser had been working for Sea Alarm since February 2006 and has been significantly contributing to the many achievements the organisation had in that four year period.
