New operation in Africa – March 2021

CSL has expanded its worldwide network with the opening of CSL Global (Risk Management Surveys) Ltd in Nigeria; this will allow us to further develop our growing risk management activities in Nigeria and more widely across Africa.

CSL Global (Risk Management Surveys) Ltd is based in Lekki, Lagos State and is managed by our resident Director, Lee Adams, who has been working as CSL’s Africa representative and local operations manager since June 2016.

Lee is an experienced marine and engineering survey operations manager and has been significantly involved with the African infrastructure project development sector for the past 7 years. He has a Master’s in Marine Operations Management.

The new company will provide practical risk management support and solutions to stakeholders in African infrastructure projects from the initial planning and FEED stages through transportation and construction, to completion and operations.


Lee Adams said “It’s an exciting time to increase our commitment to the growing African infrastructure market. We have spent five years building our experience and capabilities and are ready to deliver cargo, transportation, engineering, operations security, and cybersecurity risk management solutions to projects across the region”.

Gino Covello, Director of Global Projects, added “This addition to the CSL global network allows us to better serve our clients in the region as well as support our worldwide client base as we continue to provide tailored, cost-effective, fixed price risk management solutions. Import and export activity in Africa has more than doubled in the past seven years, and the African continent is experiencing a major infrastructure development boom principally in the LNG sector, but also the areas of power, wind, water, and sanitation.”

New US branch network (23rd November 2020)

CSL Global Ltd is pleased to announce the opening of 2 new branch offices in New York and New Orleans. As part of this expansion, the company has employed 11 experienced marine survey operations personnel who were previously employed by MMK International Marine Services Inc., a long-standing marine claims services provider.

The new survey personnel will form part of CSL Global’s integrated global survey team, with existing branch office and franchise operations in the UK, SE Asia, Latin America and Europe, and continuing our focus on offering a range of specialist marine, engineering, security and cyber security services.

Commenting on the recent changes, Jason Gibbons, Director of CSL Global Ltd said “The addition of the US branches and the addition of claims capability, brings improved operational capability and efficiency, and is an important, positive step for our people and our clients. This is an exciting time for the company as we also roll out our new transportation and infrastructure project security and cyber security risk management solutions.”
