(FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.) — Resolve Marine Group has announced that senior salvage master Nick Sloane has joined the company. This news comes just months after Resolve opened its operations in Gibraltar, expanding its emergency response capabilities to Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. Sloane joins the senior management team at Resolve to help guide the global growth of the company.

"Nick is a force in the industry and now that Resolve has a worldwide footprint, he is a natural fit," said Joe Farrell, president and CEO of Resolve Marine Group.

Sloane brings more than 34 years of experience to the organization, having overseen an extensive list of salvage and oil and gas projects across the world including the Americas, Europe, Russia, Asia, the Middle East and Africa. He was a member of the Lloyd's Panel of Special Casualty Representatives and most recently served as the senior salvage master of the Costa Concordia salvage operation off the Island of Giglio, Italy.

"I have watched Resolve grow globally over these past ten years and I am honored to now join the company’s leadership team," said Sloane. "I intend to use my experience where I can and assist in growing the business globally."

Resolve Marine Group's growth both in assets and personnel is part of its commitment to reinvest funds in order to better serve its clients. As one of a few global salvage companies that has remained family-owned and operated for more than 35 years, Resolve is not bound by shareholder interests. As such, it maintains a value-oriented culture with a strong emphasis on meeting the needs of both clients and staff at every stage of a job.

"Resolve's greatest asset is its people and we pride ourselves on that," said Farrell. "Nick Sloane brings professionalism, innovation, and a stellar work ethic that never compromises his values — that’s exactly how we manage ourselves at Resolve."
