Warren brings a wealth of a distinctive professional knowledge of Defence Industry business and market know-how to SCM.
Warren served in the Royal Australian Navy for 20 years as a Clearance Diver, working with foreign Navies in the US, South East Asia, UK and Europe. One of the many highlights of his naval career was becoming one of the inaugural instructional staff to be trained in the UK and Germany to become a submarine rescue and escape instructor.
Following his service with RAN, Warren has spent the last spent 20 years as a Business Development and Strategy Management expert.
In addition to a strong track record of managing global business development opportunities and national-level projects for the Australian and international defence and maritime markets in corporate roles, Warren has held key senior positions in some of the larger Defence primes in Australia such as Serco Defence, UGL Limited and DMS Maritime.
While working at DMS Maritime, Warren led the now successful Cape Class Patrol Boat bid for the vessel’s maintenance contract and was also instrumental in establishing both Defence and commercial business relations in Kuwait and the UAE in conjunction with a US-based vessel builder.
Equipped with a unique insight into conducting business with the Defence Forces, locally and internationally, Warren’s current focus is identifying new opportunities in the commercial and defence markets that will position Sydney City Marine as “the ship repairer and maintenance facility of choice”.
