Glosten, a Seattle-based naval architecture and marine engineering consultancy, announces the appointment of John Springer, PE, as President. As Glosten’s fifth President since its founding in 1958, Springer will have direct responsibility for strategic growth, business direction, and the excellent client service for which the firm is known.
Springer has been an exceptional leader and mentor during his 29 years with the firm. He managed Glosten’s Naval Architecture Group from 1996 to 2003, served as Operations Director from 2004 to 2009, and most recently served on the Executive Management team. “I’m honored to serve Glosten in this new role of shaping the firm’s growth in the coming years,” said Springer, “and I am so very fortunate to have the incredible foundation built by Jay Edgar, Bill Hurley, Duane Laible, and Larry Glosten to build on.”
Springer succeeds Glosten’s fourth President John (Jay) Edgar, PE. Edgar’s leadership has been instrumental in the firm’s unprecedented expansion, including the acquisition of Massachusetts-based Noise Control Engineering, LLC; the growth of its successful production design, marine environmental, and renewable energy capabilities; and, in particular, the legacy of strategic focus established for the firm. “Leading Glosten has been a rewarding opportunity,” said Edgar, now Glosten’s Director of Research and Development. “I’m pleased to support John and the entire Glosten team as we reach new heights in delivering excellence to our clients.”
