Global Head of Loss Prevention

We are pleased to announce that Emma MacCarthy has joined West as a Loss Prevention Officer. 

Emma joins us from Shell Shipping Management Ltd where she sailed as a 2nd Officer and brings with her a wealth of experience in tanker vessels, specialising in both oil and chemical.

Additionally, having studied psychiatric nursing, Emma is well placed to offer valuable insight into the effects of mental health, a much-needed resource following the Covid-19 pandemic and the strain it has had on seafarers.

With the recent additions of Captain Simon Hodgkinson as Global Head of Loss Prevention and James Oliver as Loss Prevention Officer who collectively bring extensive experience in offshore, dry cargo, surveying, working in polar regions and passenger vessels, our Loss Prevention team has been significantly strengthened with new expertise and a fresh outlook.

Simon Hodgkinson commented that, “It is great to be able to strengthen our well established and talented Loss Prevention team with new and diverse experience, enabling us to continue supporting our Members and colleagues at West.”
