Alex Woolgar, co founder and managing partner of Inception Partners has successfully finalised the appointment of the youngest ever candidate to hold the post of CEO on behalf of The Institute of Marine Engineering, Science & Technology (IMarEST).

The IMarEST was established in 1889 and is the leading international membership body and learned society for marine professionals, with over 15,000 members worldwide.

Alex completed an initial consulting engagement with IMarEST, in order to understand and define its vision and strategy as well as the opportunities and global challenges facing the Institute. He interviewed and evaluated the 18-strong board of trustees in order to build the exact DNA profile of the required CEO.

Alex said “Our ethos at Inception Partners is to apply our unique 360&deg approach to each assignment, in order to fully understand the strategic objectives of our client. This enables us then to better define the role and attributes required to deliver against these objectives. In the case of IMarEST they wanted to transform and modernise its leadership to reflect the globalisation and growth of the industry and affect a cultural shift in membership engagement, to breathe new life into such a historical organisation.”

Inception Partners completed extensive 15FQ psychometric profiling and in-depth interviews to create a high quality shortlist from which the board could choose a preferred candidate.

Working closely with the chairman and the board of trustees, Alex proactively managed a three stage interview process and successfully negotiated an acceptable package for David Loosley, who had previously spent 4 years with the Hydrographic office and 10 years with Williams Lea.

Inception Partners will now focus on delivering its on boarding programme that is designed to support David over the next six months to ensure his smooth integration into the Institute and enable him to make a positive impact within a short space of time.
