Frank J Coles, Strategic Advisor – Florida, USA
Frank is a Master Mariner, Maritime Lawyer, and former CEO of two internationally respected Maritime Technology companies as well as, but more importantly, the former CEO of a Ship and Crew Management company.
At the end of 2020, Frank resigned from this role as CEO of a ship and crew management company with some 250 ships, partly due to the inability to make the required positive changes he believed were needed to be made for seafarer welfare. Since then, he has committed a large portion of his time to advocating for seafarer welfare. Using his inside industry knowledge, he is now trying to positively influence the lives of seafarers from a different perspective.
