Dan Whitelock has had a promotion at OYS from Engineering Technician to Project Manager with immediate effect.
Dan joined OYS back in 2016, where he was hands-on, building thrusters and hydraulic cylinders including some of the largest vangs installed on superyachts. This valuable experience in the factory positions him well for the Project Management role with the practical knowledge of the tasks in hand, timescales involved, and an understanding of the processes and workings of the factory.
“I’m really looking forward to this challenge,” comments Dan Whitelock. “I’ve really enjoyed the last three years here at OYS, however, it was time to look at my career path and progression. When this opportunity came up, I jumped at the chance and was delighted when I was offered the role.”
OYS currently has Dan Wilkin as Project Manager for Thrusters and Hydraulics and Jon Briggs-Winn as Project Manager for Rigging. Dan will be working alongside both, with guidance and support from his colleagues.
“We are delighted to see Dan rising to this challenge,” comments Mark Barwell, Sales Director for OYS. “Where we can, we always look to promote internally, it’s good to see Dan already using his knowledge from the previous years here to help him in this new role. We look forward to seeing him progress within OYS.”
Dan’s role starts with immediate effect and can be contacted via email or telephone +44 1202 596612.
