ABS realigns to meet industry demands

23 Oct 2013

ABS is realigning its operational and environmental performance, nautical systems and asset integrity management services to meet industry needs.

The company has formed the Asset Performance Management Group (APMG) which integrates several existing services into a single team focused on complete life cycle performance services that it says complement traditional classification services.

“The future of classification requires ABS to work with our members and clients in a more collaborative, more efficient and less intrusive way," said Christopher J Wiernicki, chairman and CEO, ABS.

"To effectively meet the needs of the marine and offshore industries, we are continually seeking ways to better integrate our traditional classification services with innovative concepts, tools and practices."

The realignment is expected to drive the development of new class and asset integrity amangement capabilities.

APMG will be led by Howard Fireman as the senior vice president, asset performance management. He will also serve as president of the nautical systems product line.

Stephen Schwartz will join ABS as vice president and chief operating officer for nautical systems product line, while Chris Serratella will also become part of the new team as director of asset integrity management.
