Simon Earle: 7 Years At METL

Congratulations to METL CEO, Simon Earle, who clocked up 7 years at METL in August this year. Mr. Earle started as Operations Manager when METL kicked off, so has been through the ups and downs and has been dedicated to the ongoing success of the organisation.

He points to 2016 as being a particularly satisfying period. METL was awarded the NSW Department of Industry Medium Employer of the Year, produced the WA Trainee of the Year and received the coveted Lloyd’s List Maritime Services Award.

“Everyone worked hard through the set-up in 2010 and during the early years. That laid a platform for our focus on quality, our commitment to the industry the development of services that led to our accolades last year,” he said.

He also points to 2017 as being a critical period of change and growth for the organisation. 2017 saw METL complete the construction of their own training facility at the Australian Marine Complex in WA; the commencement ofa Certificate II in Maritime Operations (Linesperson) course; and accreditation given to deliver HSR training. METL is also gearing up to provide a range of maritime-specific high-risk training to enhance skills and deliver safety outcomes for the industry.

“I am proud to have been involved in these key initiatives over the last 7 years. With the support of our industry partners and Host Employers, the direction from the Board and the current team, we’ve come a long way. I am really looking forward to what we can achieve in the next few years.”
