It is a great honour and privilege for me to take over as the next Chairman and Managing Director of Goa Shipyard Limited w.e.f 01 Dec 2018.
In the past few years, the Yard has witnessed fast paced growth and reached new heights with a sharp spike in its performance parameters and stellar financial results. This has been complimented by some of the most advanced shipbuilding infrastructure being added in the last eight years. It shall be my endeavour to keep the momentum going and maintain the growth trend.
I transit into my new assignment after having had the privilege of serving the Yard as Director (Corporate Planning, Projects & Business Development) since August 2016. In the process, I have had the opportunity to familiarise myself with its working and culture that will undoubtedly stand me in good stead in the years to come.
At this point, I keenly anticipate and look forward to executing the mega projects slated for the Yard, including the advanced Missile frigates and MCMVs. These will represent a quantum leap in the Yard’s capabilities and its product portfolio. I also look forward to working towards fulfiling the Yard’s tremendous potential in the domestic and export market with a diverse product line and a robust track record of quality and timely deliveries. I expect to expand further of diversified portfolio and adopt most advanced technologies required to develop advanced systems and platforms for the future requirements of defence forces such as Unmanned platforms and AI enabled systems. I seek full cooperation and support of all GSL personnel and assure them of a prosperous future ahead.
As Chairman and Managing Director of Goa Shipyard Limited, I hope to write yet another successful chapter in the history of the Yard, built upon continuity and consistent growth. I am determined to see the Company’s Value of Production grow exponentially. And with all the excellent resources at GSL’s command, I am confident that we will achieve this together.
