Vice President Expedition Operations
Bill is Quark’s VP Operations and brings over 20 years of practical experience and 200 voyages as an Expedition Leader to the Polar Regions. He studied at the Scott Polar Research Institute, Cambridge University, is a member of the Explorers Club and has a vast understanding of the unique environment in which we operate. Although he still manages to participate in a few trips every year, his primary role is shore-based where he maintains and develops the industry’s most outstanding program in the field. Bill also acts as Quark's representative for two polar organizations - IAATO and AECO.
He loves his job for its many challenges, innovative thinking required, and his ability to work with the most interesting group of people on the planet.
