John Percival Leadership Award 2023
“Commitment to Training, Commitment to Crew”
John Percival Leadership Award Celebrates 10 Years of Honouring Outstanding Maritime Leadership and Training Commitment
Captain John Percival, an advocate for onboard training and crew development, established JPMA as a crew training centre in the late ’90s, dedicated to fostering high standards across all crew levels and departments. His passion was inspiring students to return to their vessel emboldened and ready to nurture junior crew.
In remembrance of his vision, the John Percival Leadership Award was established to recognise and reward individuals across all levels of crew, who embody his ideals of crew development, mentorship and dedication.
The award has consistently celebrated crew members who demonstrate exceptional leadership qualities, going above and beyond in guiding and nurturing their peers, ensuring high standards across various departments.
In 2023, marking the award’s 10th anniversary, JPMA seeks nominations for exceptional crew members who have not only maintained high standards but have also inspired their peers in an ever-evolving maritime landscape.
