Mark S. WhiteVP Midwest Region
Mr. White, a Divers Academy of Eastern Seaboard graduate, joined UCC in 1989. Starting as dive/tender, he was quickly promoted – first to diver mechanic and then diver supervisor where he was involved in all aspects of inland commercial diving and marine construction. In the mid-1990s, he was promoted to project manager where he specialized in the underwater coatings program as a Level II Coatings Inspector and Applicator. At the same time, Mr. White oversaw other large capital marine projects throughout the Midwest and Great Lakes.
In 2003, Mr. White was promoted to the Midwest Operations Manager overseeing the Michigan office operations and the division’s 85+ employees. Under his two-decade leadership in operations, the Midwest division experienced tremendous growth and strategic expansion.
In 2010, the opening of a second Midwest office in Wisconsin solidified UCC’s foothold in the region. Then in 2014, Seaview Diving Contractors of Green Bay, WI, was purchased. In 2015, two more acquisitions were made to include Seabrex Marine Inc. (Stevensville, MI) and Great Lakes Diving Co. (Grand Rapids, MI). The Midwest Division’s impressive customer base and expansive service area make it the largest commercial diving company in the Midwest Region.
During the summer of 2022, Mr. White was promoted to his current position of Vice President Midwest Region, where he oversees all operations and business throughout the Midwest Region.
