Mobile, Ala. (October 3, 2023) – Silver Ships has recently promoted Jason Powers to the role of Chief Operating Officer (COO). Previously, Powers held the role of Director of Business Development and has been a valued and dedicated member of the Silver Ships team for more than 25 years.

As COO, Powers will direct daily production operations alongside the executive team and report directly to CEO, Steven Clarke. His responsibilities will include organizational leadership, process optimization, cost management, performance management and continuous improvement. This includes leading, directing and managing all project management and production activities in coordination with Engineering, Purchasing and Accounting departments. Powers is tasked with maximizing operational efficiency and developing a performance reporting system that accurately measures progress against quantifiable objectives for each unit.

I’ve been a part of the Silver Ships’ team for more than 25 years and I am excited to step into this position,” said Jason Powers, Silver Ships Chief Operating Officer.

During his tenure at Silver Ships, Powers has been integral in developing most of the business processes that have aided Silver Ships to become the industry leader it is today.
