24th June 2014: In charge of UK company operations, including the Southampton, London and Isle of Man offices, John Gouch has joined Burness Corlett Three Quays (BCTQ) as Managing Consultant (UK). Effective as from the 6th May, John will be based in BCTQ’s Southampton office.

An Incorporated Engineer with practical operational experience as a Class 1 Engineering Officer in the Merchant Navy and design experience as a Senior Project Engineer. John started his career as an Engineering Officer back in 1988 with Buries Markes and then moved to cable ships with British Telecom Marine and Cable & Wireless Marine, laying fibre optic cables around the globe.

From here John worked in the superyacht industry as Chief Engineer onboard MY Talitha G, before finally making the move ashore.

Whilst ashore, John was Technical Superintendent for Serco Marine Services, where he also qualified as a Marine Surveyor. Moving into Serco’s bid team John was the Senior Project Engineer for a New Build package of 29 vessels, taking the vessels from concept, through specification development, plan approval and then build supervision.

John’s last project with Serco for the MOD was the purchase, conversion design and supervision of the SD Northern River; now operating as the UK “Gold Standard” vessel for the Nato Submarine Rescue System (NSRS). John then spent time working with Svitzer Marine as the Cluster Technical Manager for the South West, before making the move to BCTQ.

With aspirations to further develop BCTQ’s range of abilities and experience including design, survey, safety & legal and expert witness services across both commercial and superyacht markets, John said: “We have been delivering marine services for more than 62 years, and with an impressive portfolio, range of services, and level of dedication I have seen in just the short time I have been with BCTQ, I am confident the company has an impressive future ahead of it.”
