After over 30 years as founders and owners of Global Diving & Salvage, Inc., Tim Beaver and John Graham continue to remain excited about the future of the company. This month, they are pleased to announce the newest chapter in Global’s history; Devon Grennan, President for the past four years, will now also take on the position of Chief Executive Officer. Mr. Beaver and Mr. Graham will maintain ownership and continue to serve on the Board of Directors, but will step down from direct operational involvement.
Both founders share in the sentiment, Mr. Grennan is the ideal candidate to continue in the traditions honored by Global; individual pride and professional passion for the craft of diving and marine services, honesty in the workplace and in dealing with clients, and safety in the field.

As CEO/President his newest undertaking is to determine the overall strategic plan for the company and lead the senior management team and the Board of Directors in Global’s mission to provide quality marine service and discover new opportunities to better serve the maritime industry.
“I am very excited to take on this challenge, Global continues to develop new capabilities and uncover opportunities beyond the original vision of the founders.” says Mr. Grennan, “With the foundation laid these past 30 plus years and the quality and experience of our people, we continue to transition from a traditional commercial diving company into a more well rounded, marine and subsea service provider. Our four regional locations and diverse service lines allow us to serve an ever-expanding market, both domestically and internationally.”
