Welcome to OSRL

Rob James

Commercial Director

With a first degree in Physics, Rob also holds a Masters Degree in Process Safety and Loss Prevention.  Rob was Managing Director of an environmental technology spin off from a major nuclear corporation before moving into the waste management services sector, where he had some six years experience as the General Manager of a growing hazardous waste business.

Rob joined OSRL in 2003 and has been a key part of the rapid growth of its preparedness and response services. He was instrumental in establishing a rigorous approach to recruitment and putting in place new competence-based training programmes.  He has overseen OSRL’s responses to major oil spills, such as the Tasman Spirit, Macondo and Bonga incidents.

As OSRL grew, Rob focussed on the delivery of Response services as Regional Director, EMEA until 2021, when he moved to the role of Commercial Director, taking responsibility for the management and development of our preparedness activities, and driving stakeholder engagement, communication and outreach activities.
