KBA IS AWARDED THE 2018 HISTORICAL DIVING SOCIETY LEONARD GREENSTONE AWARD
KB Associates is pleased to announce that it is the recipient of the 2018 Historical Diving Society Leonard Greenstone Award.
The Award recognises safety professionals, groups, organisations or companies in the fields of commercial, scientific, military or recreational diving. It was founded by and named after Leonard Greenstone in 1974, and supported by NAUI; after which was then deeded to the Historical Diving Society USA (HDS) in 2012 when he passed away. Leonard was a U.S. Navy salvage diver during WWII, and a strong advocate of diver’s safety. Among his many contributions to the world of diving was the establishing of the Leonard Greenstone Marine Technology Training Program at Chino State Prison, California, which has consistently recorded the lowest prisoner recidivism rate in California history and possibly in the nation also.
Leslie Leaney, Chairman of Historical Diving Society USA Awards Committee commented, “Leonard was a fantastic man and he would be very happy with the standards that KB Associates Group has established throughout the international community.”
Darren Brunton, Managing Director of KBA commented, “In todays ‘fast track’ world of business and survival, we often don’t have the time to reflect on the achievements and contributions to the industry globally that have been made over the last 16 years of KBA’s existence of providing diving safety consultancy and training. We are humbled and honoured of such recognition, while elated that our work as a team has been recognised. On receipt of the award, we will continue the pursuit of ‘MAKING A DIFFERENCE’ in the world of commercial diving safety; provide training and career opportunities for commercial divers, work diligently to ensure the reputation of Leonard Greenstone and its award is maintained to the highest level of professionalism and integrity.”
