He replaces SNAME fellow Ed Stokes, who has served as the SNAME representative for the last eight years, including the last two as board chairman.

A SNAME member since 1983, Leverette has been in the offshore industry for 38 years, including deep-water development and, specifically, tension teg platforms.

He has a doctorate jointly from MIT and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and his career has included eight years at Gulf Oil Co., 10 years as head of a small deep-water engineering firm and 20 years at SBM Offshore.
