Meet Gi-Hoon.

Gi-Hoon is the Senior Surveyor in charge of our Ulsan region and has been at LR for 12 years. He has currently based in South Korea, and spent a long time in London on secondment. 

Why did you join?

I joined LR from another class society, and thought joining would give me more opportunities and experience because LR has so much history and technical expertise. 

Why did you stay?

Since I have been here, I have had more experience than I thought and been provided with many opportunities that have allowed me to progress from a Senior Surveyor to what I do now. I also really value my colleagues who are really supportive. When I moved to London they really helped me adjust to life here when I had never been here before, and I really appreciate that.

Describe a typical day at LR?

Most days I work with Korean clients or ship builders  to maintain the relationship, as well as searching for new business opportunities. Sometimes clients needs my technical expertise, at other times I am looking at different projects. Everyday is busy!

What is your proudest moment at LR?

When I was a surveyor I was working on a particularly difficult project with a demanding client. During the consutrction there were many difficulties but I made every effort to solve all of the problems. When I completed the project the client decided to award my efforts, and I was really proud because I was recogonised for the extra effort I had made to help resolve the issues.
