Rich Lofgren: I am a degreed Civil Engineer, consultant, strategic–minded business development professional and power networker/connector. I have worked for some of the largest and most successful engineering, construction and medical device companies in the world. I have an extensive background in construction, quality assurance/quality control, construction safety, and medical device sales. I have worked on many diverse and complex multi-million-dollar construction projects including pulp and paper facilities, nuclear power plants, various United States Naval Facility projects, oil refineries, sugar refineries, wastewater treatment facilities, combined-cycle generating plants, seawall construction projects, and cogeneration facilities. I currently run my company, Optimum Consulting Services, which provides consulting and business development services for project delivery professionals involved with nuclear decommissioning/decontamination/dismantling, construction, quality assurance/quality control, aerospace, space & defense, sea exploration, mining, robotics & automation, sensor technology, nanotechnology/MEMs, Internet of things, transportation, smart cities, medical devices, small nuclear reactors and advanced reactors, advanced/additive manufacturing 3D printing, augmented reality, virtual reality, artificial intelligence, supply chain logistics, privacy and security, blockchain technology and cryptocurrency.
With your specialized skills and talents, please tell us why you choose to work with Seafarer.
I am a power connector who is well connected within blockchain technology, construction and robotics. I choose Seafarer as I am intrigued by their involvement with conservation, salvage, exploration and blockchain encryption. My specialized skillset can get Seafarer in front of the right people, advance technologies and make history.
What are your goals and ambitions with Seafarer?
My goal with Seafarer is to help form strategic partnerships and key relationships that will drive innovation and advance technologies which will ultimately benefit the company and shareholders. Eventually, I would like a position in management to fully commit to the innovative business I can directly help Seafarer build.
Where do you see Seafarer in five years?
I picture Seafarer becoming the worldwide dominate leader in the treasure sector. With all of the technology being developed by Seafarer and the scientists Kyle Kennedy has brought onboard, I see tremendous success, perhaps on a scale not seen before. In addition, with the different verticals of revenues being created by Seafarer specifically to support the salvage operations, I can visualize material growth, new equipment, working multiple sites simultaneously and increasing shareholder value. The next five years for Seafarer will be the best five years in their company’s history and I am going to be part of it.
