Gerard Pollock’s career has given him broad nautical experience augmented by specialisms in maritime regulation.
Gerard first went to sea in 1998 as a cadet with the Conway Merchant Navy Trust before joining BP, with whom he sailed on VLCC, coastal, LNG and DP shuttle tankers.
He then moved on to large superyachts as the ISM Code became mandatory and helped implement the culture change in this sector, followed by stints on passenger ships including the ‘QE2’ and the MY ‘Wind Surf’. After a protracted newbuild project, Gerard held command on a large, prestigious yacht with one of the industry’s prominent owners.
In 2017, Gerard moved ashore, becoming a flag/port State control inspector and ISM auditor with New Zealand’s maritime regulator. He is a PSC trainer/assessor and has led international PSC training seminars on behalf of the Tokyo MOU.
Gerard currently works as an advisor within an international aid programme and assists Pacific Island countries to improve maritime safety. His current role is to support in-country capacity-building, maritime regulatory reform, as well as the implementation of maritime conventions and driving positive results during IMSAS audits.
