Mr Adriano Guerrini: Chief Executive Officer

The founder of Guerrini Marine Construction Diving and Salvage in 1995 and Director (CEO), Adrian started off as a SA Navy diver, completed his Supervisor’s commercial diving qualification and furthered up his studies and qualified as a Civil Engineer.

Adrian has worked in the commercial diving industry as well as the civil area, mostly on the operational side where he realized that divers and civil engineers tend to clash. With his combined skills Adrian believed he could grasp the challenges associated with both jobs and find a way of solving issues that make sense for both the diver and the engineer.

Adrian is personally involved in all commercial diving projects involving salvage, rapid response, repairs and various marine operations.

His Knowledge and first hand skills in those specialized operations have created his legacy with a flawless track record.
