Kyle Watson Promoted to Director of Casualty Response
April 11, 2019
Global is pleased to announce that Kyle Watson has accepted the position of Director of Casualty Response, the lead executive position for the Casualty Response Group at Global. Mr. Watson has been serving as the interim Director since mid-December, overseeing a number of large-scale projects, working with clients, and developing Global’s strategy for emergency response. The position is based out of Global’s Seattle office.
Mr. Watson said he looks forward to directing Global’s Casualty group, and exploring opportunities for growth. “It’s a very exciting time at Global! Our recent acquisition by Moran Environmental Recovery creates symbiosis both geographically and operationally. Couple that with our shared core values of professionalism, discipline, and safety, and it becomes evident that Global couldn’t have found a better fit than MER. One of the things I’m most excited about is blending Global’s salvage and disaster response services with MER’s emergency and spill response services across a broader North American market.”
Mr. Watson joined Global in 2003 and has served in a variety of roles including Environmental Operations Manager in Seattle, WA; Environmental Operations Manager in Richmond, CA; and most recently as Salvage Officer. He has been involved in many of Global’s highest profile casualty response projects over his 16 years at the company. Mr. Watson graduated from California Maritime Academy in 1999 with a Business Administration degree.
One thought on “Kyle Watson Promoted to Director of Casualty Response”
Met 1/28/21 while observing the raising of a 100′ ex Alaska ferry, sunk in a windstorm at Anacortes, Washington. Was impressed by his knowledge and his willingness to share. The site was in a high population density area, a local ferry dock
and a small city park which made an excellent viewing area. Many people took advantage of that. Mr. Watson did an admirable job of maintaining contact with his salvage crew and keeping the onlookers informed. Talent like that is normally missing on most technical sites.
