For the second year, 40 of the industry’s future leaders were honored at the Inland Marine Expo with the "40 Under 40” award. All 40 honorees were nominated by executives and peers for their hard work and dedication to the industry.
The Waterways Journal featured our very own Michael Breslin as one of the 40 recipients.
Michael Breslin, 38, is manager of Subchapter M compliance for Turn Services LLC, New Orleans.
After serving in combat with the U.S. Army in the Middle East, he went to work for Turn Services as a green deckhand. After several years on deck, he moved into the office to dispatch the Myrtle Grove and Meraux fleets. His organizational skills and quick grasp of the logistical challenges of the fleets were apparent even when he worked on the deck.
After a few years dispatching, Breslin was transferred to claims and claims management. His insight into personal injury claims led him to advocate for more and higher quality training, record keeping and compliance, especially at the deck level. He was then transferred to compliance and regulatory affairs, where he initiated, designed, directed and taught the deckhand training school at Turn Services. He began to track the training and qualifications of all the employees of the company.
When Subchapter M arrived, Breslin was heavily involved in teaching and implementing the regulations. Today, under the direction of Capt. Bob Mueller (USCG Retired), Breslin handles the Subchapter M regulations, runs the deckhand school and maintains the training records.
