Jane Smallman CSci CMarSci FIMarEST was appointed 114th President of the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST) at its 127th Annual General Meeting on Friday 18th March 2016. Jane is the first woman to hold the position in the Institute’s 127-year history.
“I am delighted to welcome Jane as the first female president of the IMarEST. She will be an inspirational figure not just for women in or embarking on a marine profession, but also for men. I firmly believe that it is vital for both genders to see capable women in positions of leadership. We need to highlight to the overall consciousness of our industry, an unquestionably male-dominated one, that gender has no bearing on aptitude or skill.” David Loosley, IMarEST Chief Executive.
