Mark Clark has over 25 years of working on crisis desks in both the commercial world and UK government transport and health departments. He has provided strategic media handling advice to many of the world’s leading shipping companies and has been on the front line in numerous high profile casualties.
Formerly a print journalist, and then behind the microphone on both the BBC and independent radio stations across Europe, Mark was also a personal press officer to a UK Cabinet Minister for a lengthy period and spent some time at the very highest level of government.
Between 1997 and 2011 he headed the UK Maritime & Coastguard Agency’s public relations and media department. During this time he handled many significant shipping, yachting and oil incidents and worked closely with many companies and teams within the oil and gas sectors. He has been involved in many multi-faceted drills, training exercises and on-line simulations of casualty situations to test organisations, local authorities, government bodies and shipping and energy companies.
