Decades of combined marine and aviation safety experience

Dave Chapman - National Sales Manager

I've been with Survitec Group since 2003. After two years as a Liferaft Service Technician, I progressed to first become the Nelson Branch Manager, and then Regional Manager, in 2006. In this role I look after the day-to-day running of the three branches outside Auckland and associated sales area from Napier/New Plymouth to Bluff.

I'm also the Quality Manager, with responsibility for ensuring we meet all audit requirements. By strange coincidence my association with the group dates back to 1977 when, during submarine escape training, I got to try one of the escape suits made by our sister company Survitec Group Birkenhead. Outside of work I enjoy diving, fishing and water-skiing.

I joined the Survitec Group in September 2013, taking on the role of Sales Support. I enjoy my role as one day is never the same.

I have come from a Marine Navigation background of 12 years and have established excellent working relationships with clients from both Commercial and Leisure sectors of the industry. During this time I have assisted clients in navigating our seas both inshore and offshore safely.

My interests outside of work include most outdoor activities such as water sports and fishing with my family.

Jason James - Wellington Branch Manager

I jumped aboard Survitec Group in late August 2013 and I am thoroughly enjoying myself. I have quickly learned that I am working in an extremely interesting and exciting industry with a vast diversity of specialised products and interesting clients.  This comes as a huge change after 20 plus years in retail but already I know it was the right decision. I have found that there is a lot to learn about the marine and aviation industries but luckily I have a great team of well experienced colleagues as back-up.

My area covers from Wellington to Hawkes Bay and over to New Plymouth and I look forward to providing all my clients with superb products and outstanding service.

In my spare time I enjoy landscape gardening, camping, surfcasting, barbeques and fishing from our family boat and if I am not doing one of these activities I am probably walking my Rottweiler.
