    Crowley formalizes new global ship management and government services groups

    Crowley Maritime Corp. announced today the formalization of two new groups: Government Services and Global Ship Management . These two new, standalone business segments, which were previously imbedded in other company business units, will allow Crowley and its personnel to better serve customers in these unique contracting segments. Leading the new business units are industry veterans Mike Golonka, vice president, government services, and Wendy MacDonald, vice president, global ship management.

    The Government Services team combines the technical and professional capabilities of the company’s owned and managed fleets, under the direction of a team of tenured professionals, many of whom are mariners, to bring together best-in-class operations, engineering and contracting personnel. The team provides bundled vessel management solutions for the United States Maritime Administration, Military Sealift Command, and other agencies; custodial services for vessels seized by U.S. Government agencies; naval architecture and marine engineering services; project management and salvage and dive operations; and a host of other services.

    The Global Ship Management group – which includes international partnership Crowley Accord and Seattle-based subsidiary Maritime Management Services, Inc. (MMS) – provides technical services and crew management as well as a broad range of back-office services to a variety of conventional vessel types such as tankers, container and general cargo, and Roll-on/Roll-off (Ro/Ro) vessels; along with specialized vessels such as deep-water pipe-layers, geotechnical and seismic research vessels; and offshore construction support vessels. With offices in the U.S., Mumbai, Goa, Hong Kong and Amsterdam, Crowley’s global ship management group, including Crowley Accord, manages over 60 vessels in the U.S. domestic and international markets. The company has developed longstanding working relationships with vendors, suppliers and major foreign and domestic labor organizations, allowing them to provide professional management services, with an emphasis on Crowley’s No. 1 core value, safety. The policies and procedures reflected in every aspect of Crowley’s management system are based on recognized ISO and ISM standards to ensure regulatory compliance.

    Leading the Government Services group is Golonka, who previously served as vice president, ship management. In this new role, he will continue reporting to Busch, and will remain based in the company’s headquarters in Jacksonville, Fla. Golonka and his team will develop and synchronize government services offerings across the Crowley portfolio and will further align the group with government contracting requirements, including time keeping, cost accounting and compliance with Federal Acquisition Requirement (FAR) clauses.
