British Marine is delighted to announce that Brian Clark has returned to the Association as the new Head of Public Affairs, Policy and Research. This newly formed role is designed to deliver on the key objectives and direction of the new British Marine strategy which will be announced over the coming months.

Brian first joined British Marine in 2005, starting as Environment Executive before progressing to Head of External Relations.

In his new role, Brian is tasked with developing and delivering thought leadership and strategic policy direction for the Association and implementing substantive change through key stakeholder management at the highest level for British Marine and the UK leisure marine industry as a whole. Brian will act as a key spokesperson for British Marine, leading on policy issues of the day. He will also continue to develop the research that British Marine produces to support the industry.

Brian commented, “It’s great to be back at British Marine during this exciting time as we look to deliver our new vision for the benefit of members. I am looking forward to working with Lesley and the rest of the team to raise the profile of British Marine, its members and the wider UK marine industry.”

“Representation is central to our work and I look forward to building on the excellent relationships we have with Parliament, regulators and our strategic partners.”
