Member Profile: Steve Hall

MTS Member and CEO of The Society for Underwater Technology -

I’m Steve Hall, born in the UK. I spent my early years in England, Australia, and eventually Wales where I finished school. Most of the time we lived near the sea, and between long summers on the beach, and growing up watching TV shows like Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, and the Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau, I was always interested in the ocean and particularly the machinery that enabled humans to explore the deep, though I was also very interested in aviation and spaceflight as a child of the Apollo era.

President's Welcome Message

President’s Message

July 22, 2020
 

I am excited to step up as President of MTS. Thank you to Rick Spinrad for his service as President and for setting an ambitious and exciting path forward. For those who may not know about my professional background, I retired as a Captain in the U.S. Navy as a Meteorology and Oceanography officer. I then served joined NOAA where I was the founding Director of the United States Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS®). Currently, I am the CEO of Veraison Consulting LLC which focuses on ocean technology and policy. My affiliation with MTS began as the Director of IOOS where the MTS/IEEE-OES OCEANS conference was the perfect venue for the IOOS program to convey how it was growing and where we had the opportunity to listen to concerns and interests of the greater marine technology sector.
