After serving a mechanical engineering apprenticeship in a Scottish shipyard, Tom Wilson joined the Merchant Navy as a Junior Engineer in 1975, attaining the rank of Chief Engineer.
He came ashore in 1986 and the next six years were spent working with a major shipping company as Superintendent Engineer in their offshore division, operating large anchor handling vessels and supervising offshore projects and new-buildings. During that time, Tom was sponsored in the undertaking of an Honours Degree in Mechanical Engineering. This was followed by three years as Senior Projects Engineer, designing and overseeing major vessel conversions and modifications worldwide. From 1992 to early 2012, Tom was employed as a Staff, then Principal Surveyor, then Regional Director with The Salvage Association, where significant experience was gained dealing with all aspects of marine casualty claims and risk assessment.
