SAN DIEGO, Oct. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Skye Maritime is pleased to announce the appointment of Ben Smith as its new Director of Consultancy.  Ben served for 15 years in the British Army as a Special Operations reservist; he was also an attorney in the UK, appearing in the UK equivalent of District, Military and Appellate courts in over 2000 cases.  From 2008 Ben served in Afghanistan and Iraq as a counter-insurgency operator and close protection specialist.  His appointments included patrol medic and sharpshooter.  He regularly delivers hostile environment training and threat briefings to major US and UK news networks, and still delivers weapons and tactics training to law enforcement, military and civilians as a consultant firearms instructor.

Skye Maritime's President, Alex Martin, commented: "We are tremendously excited that Ben has joined us here at Skye Maritime.  Skye has firmly established itself as the premier provider of high quality maritime security and consultancy services, and Ben's addition to the company completes a management team which has unparalleled experience in these fields.  Skye is able to offer the full range of maritime and land-based security solutions, strategic security consulting and global risk management." 

Ben will join Skye Maritime in London next week where they will co-host the 2012 Hanson Wade Combatting Piracy Conference.  Skye's President, Alex Martin, will be delivering a talk that will argue why private maritime security companies must take the lead in their own regulations, standards, and procedures not only as a matter of best business practice, but also as a moral imperative.
