Engineering consultancy BMT has appointed Catriona Savage to the role of Technical Assurance Director, responsible for its global technical authority, and leading BMTs global technical community in delivering a right first time approach and ensuring exceptional performance.

Savage, a chartered engineer, a fellow of the Royal Institution of Naval Architects and a member of IMarEST, the Institute of Directors and the Royal Corps of Naval Constructors, re-joins BMT from a role as Chair in Naval Architecture and Honorary Professor at University College London. Previously, she was the Technical Director for BMT’s UK defence business. The Technical Assurance Director is a key leadership role, intended to directly support the successful delivery of business to BMT’s customers across all territories.

Savage said: "I am really excited about returning to BMT. In particular I am looking forward to having the opportunity to work across the breadth of the organisation, with the diversity of people and technical capabilities we have internationally.  I see a key part of my role as continuing to develop excellence across the group through leading and facilitating collaboration and communication across our extremely capable, global, technical team."

She hopes to bring new leadership to technical professional development across BMT. She is active in the professional community as a trustee of the Royal Institution of Naval Architects, deputy chair of UKNEST and vice chair of the IMarEST Naval Engineering Special Interest Group. She is also an external examiner for undergraduate maritime degree courses at the universities of Newcastle and Strathclyde.
