Jason Powers has been promoted to chief operating officer of Silver Ships. Previously, he served as director of business development. He has been with the company for more than 25 years.
As COO, Powers will direct daily operations alongside the executive team. His responsibilities will include organizational leadership, process optimization, cost management, performance management and continuous improvement. This includes leading, directing and managing all project management and production activities in coordination with engineering, purchasing and accounting departments.
“As chief operating officer, I am striving to update business processes to continually improve the product we deliver and further empower one of the best workforces in the industry,” said Powers.
During his tenure, Powers has helped develop most of the business processes the company currently uses. He has played an essential role in leading the sales team, as well as developing relationships with marine vendors that outfit Silver Ships workboats. He has worked with law enforcement, fire rescue and hydrographic surveying sectors, and most recently the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in Louisiana to build and deliver Silver Ships’ largest marine surveying vessel of the Endeavor series.
“We have always believed in recognizing and rewarding the hard work and dedication of our team members. Jason’s promotion is a testament to his outstanding contributions to building this company over his 25-year career with us,” said Steven Clarke, Silver Ships CEO.
Silver Ships, headquartered in Theodore, produces aluminum boats for military, federal, state and municipal government, as well as commercial applications.
