The board of directors of The Glosten Associates, Inc. has elected John (Jay) Edgar, P.E., to Vice President effective January 1, 2010. He will continue to provide technical leadership and oversight as Director of Engineering, a role he has held since 2007, while assuming this new role as part of the firmâ€™s on-going management transition. “This action by the board reflects our confidence in Jay’s increasing leadership role in the firm,” said William Hurley, President.
A principal in the firmâ€™s naval architecture group, Mr. Edgar is a 1987 graduate of Webb Institute of Naval Architecture. In his 22 years with Glosten, he has been integral in the development of creative design solutions and incorporation of advanced analysis throughout the engineering process. He has been responsible for oversight and delivery of some of the firm’s largest and most complex projects including his recent role as Program Manager for Boeingâ€™s Sea-Based X-Band Radar (SBX) Platform project for the U.S. Missile Defense Agency.
â€œIt is a challenge and an honor to assume this new role,â€ says Mr. Edgar â€œIâ€™ve been fortunate throughout my career to have had the unique and rewarding engineering opportunities Glosten provides; I look forward to ensuring that this great group of Associates continues to grow and thrive while delivering technical excellence and innovative solutions to the marine community.â€
