Thom joined DSB Offshore for the first time in 2008 after graduating from the University of Southampton with a Masters degree in Naval Architecture. He completed the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers Professional qualifying exams in 2012 and has been a member of the association ever since.
Thom left DSB in 2016 to set sail on the adventure of a lifetime on his 28-foot sailboat. Four and a half years later he returned to the UK having completed a 37,000 nautical mile solo circumnavigation. Thom continued to work for DSB as a consultant during some of this time meeting our long-term clients as he travelled around the world.
In the spring of 2022, Thom re-joined DSB Offshore full-time as Director and Shipbroker and specialises in the tug and workboat markets, long-distance towage and heavy lift transports as well as developing new business areas for the company. With his technical background, Thom enjoys getting fully involved with all aspects of a project and the challenge of finding the best solutions and most suitable vessels for our clients’ needs.
Outside of work Thom still enjoys sailing in his spare time as well as cycling and writing.
