A leading provider of secure maritime data communications software, GTMaritime, announces three new appointments as the company continues to expand its expertise in product development and support.

Jigar Shah has been appointed as the new Product Specialist at GTMaritime, bringing 10 years of experience developing and delivering satellite communications and maritime software solutions to Fortune 250 enterprises and SMBs.

Beginning his career as a marine product engineer at Inmarsat, Jigar rose to a senior solutions engineer where he was responsible for improving the user experience and worked closely with third parties to develop services based on a satellite network that added value to maritime communications.

From then on, the satcom and maritime software market became a key focus, and Jigar became a senior consultant at SES AS, where he focused on facilitating and deploying state-of-the-art solutions. Since 2015, he has held technical director positions, deepening his understanding of offshore connectivity issues and providing opportunities to work with emerging technologies such as cloud-based infrastructure and IIoT within the maritime industry.

GTMaritime has also appointed Patrick Berry to the development team and Joseph Burthem as customer support specialist, each of whom will meet the growing demand for reliable and secure maritime software solutions. The appointments follow GTMaritime’s previous announcement that its solutions are now installed on more than 10,000 vessels worldwide, as the company experiences an influx of requests for solutions that can safely and efficiently support increasing data traffic between ship and shore.

Jamie Jones, COO of GTMaritime said: “We are delighted to welcome Jigar, Patrick and Joseph to the GTMaritime team. Jigar will be responsible for taking GTMaritime solutions to the next level, supporting customer engagement as our services continue to evolve, and contributing to the ongoing development and innovation of the GTMaritime portfolio; while Patrick and Joseph will contribute to the development, deployment and management of our future-proof maritime solutions. As ships become increasingly connected, GTMaritime remains committed to investing in its people and providing reliable solutions that help alleviate communication and connectivity challenges at sea.”

Jigar Shah commented, “This is a momentous time in the maritime communications space, as a greater degree of connectivity at sea is expected and needed to support vessel operations and the adoption of new technologies. GTMaritime offers innovative, reliable, secure and easy-to-use solutions to meet the daily challenges of maritime communications. I look forward to helping shipowners and operators unlock the full potential that GTMaritime’s solutions can offer in an increasingly connected maritime industry.
