Princess Cruises has appointed Stuart Hawkins as senior vice president of Health, Environment, Safety, and Security Compliance.

Previously vice president of “new builds,” Hawkins will add to his current role by assuming responsibility for the administration and maintenance of the company’s safety management system and fleet regulations, the company said in a press release.

In the new role Hawkins oversees shipboard and shoreside compliance with operating and safety procedures, corporate standards, and regulatory requirements, a spokesman for Princess Cruises said.

A naval architect and chartered engineer, Hawkins has in recent years managed the design, construction, and delivery of Royal Princess and Ruby Princess as well as Cunard vessels Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth.

He moved to his most recent role based in Southampton, UK in 2006, having joined the company in 2000 as site manager in the shipyard during the construction of Golden Princess.

Hawkins also coordinated the efforts to build seven Princess ships and will continue to oversee the delivery of Regal Princess in 2014.

This is the fourth senior level appointment Princess Cruises has announced in the past two months.

In late June, the company said Gordon Ho had been appointed to a newly-created position as senior vice president of marketing — leading the company’s global marketing, public relations and digital activities.

In July, the company announced the appointments of John Chernesky to a newly-created position of vice president, onboard revenue and product development. And it appointed Adrian Fischer as vice president of entertainment at Princess Cruises.

“We’re so pleased that Stuart is taking on this important new role,” said Alan Buckelew, Princess Cruises president and CEO. “He’ll be working closely with our fleet operations team to make sure that all of our ships are meeting the highest standards to provide a safe and secure environment for our passengers.”

Hawkins will be based in the company’s Santa Clarita headquarters.
