Bourgeois And Mitchell Elected Vice Presidents At State Boat Corp.
The board of directors of the State Boat Corporation has announced the election of Ivan J. Bourgeois and Roger Mitchell as vice presidents of the corporation.
A native of Berwick, La., Mr. Bourgeois began his 25-year career in the offshore transportation industry in 1954 as a deckhand.
After working his way up to captain, he later served in several supervisory positions onshore. Mr. Bourgeois joined State Boat in 1970 as marine supervisor and was subsequently promoted to fleet supervisor.
As vice president, Mr. Bourgeois will oversee the marketing and operation of 13 of the vessels in State Boat's fleet.
Mr. Mitchell, a native of Port-of-Spain, Trinidad, has been involved with marine engines, fishing vessels, and supply vessels for 15 years. Beginning his career as a service manager with the Caterpillar marine engine dealership in Trinidad, Mr. Mitchell joined State Boat in 1971 as manager of State Trawlers Company, an overseas subsidiary of State Boat Corporation. In 1975, Mr.
Mitchell was transferred to State Boat's supply vessel operation, where he has previously been both a marine and fleet supervisor.
His duties are now identical to those of Mr. Bourgeois.
Both Mr. Mitchell and Mr. Bourgeois work out of State Boat's Morgan City, La., office and reside in the area with their families.
For over two decades, State Boat Corporation has been a pioneer in providing tug supply and supply vessels for the offshore transportation industry in the Gulf of Mexico and throughout the world. State Boat's fleet currently consists of 26 vessels ranging up to 204 feet and 7,200 hp, with additional vessels under construction.
