GTMaritime was founded by Robert Kenworthy, CEO, who started his career as a 2nd Mate in the Merchant Navy. From his time at sea Robert understood the importance of good communications but paramount was the reliability of any system coupled with a top-quality support service to help the crew should they have issues. He created GTMaritime, built up a support team and developed the solutions that would help both the vessel and crew keep in touch, as well as providing these in a cost-effective manner for the business.
The first product developed was GTMail which was aimed at delivering cost saving on satellite airtime. From there the company has continued to develop and innovate to deliver solutions that are specifically developed for the maritime industry including anti-virus, data transfer and crew solutions.
“I’m really proud of what GTMaritime has achieved over the last 20 years,” says Robert. “However, I couldn’t have done it alone; we have a great team who have over 100 years of combined maritime communications experience. We use this experience to look after our customers and to develop and deliver cutting-edge solutions and services that really work for our customers.”
