Barry is Managing Director of Fischer Panda UK Ltd and has been on the Commercial Marine committee since 2014.
What made you decide to join the committee?
I felt that the committee does a good job and I was interested to understand more about the commercial side of the marine industry. I have been involved in 'on board' power systems for around 25 years now, but mainly in the leisure boat industry. I felt joining the committee would broaden my knowledge and understanding of the commercial market better. I also felt that being on the committee would open up networking opportunities for my company in the commercial sector.
What are the benefits of being involved?
I enjoy being involved in the detailed discussions about new legislation and having the opportunity to influence in a small way the way this legislation impacts on the commercial marine market. Being more closely involved in these discussions also means I can influence the way our product line develops to make sure we are able to meet the requirements of our customers. This will in turn benefit my business and enhance our standing in the commercial marine sector.
