"One of the preeminent minds in maritime transportation policy, Mr. Dawicki's humble beginnings have taken him from the United States Coast Guard Reserve and Merchant Marine Careers to heading up one of the largest privately held maritime education and training institutions in the United States and transitioning it into the first private maritime college in America. He is responsible for creating and developing the 25th largest ship registry in the world and is a former member of the United Nation's World Maritime University's Board of Governors as well a former Executive Governor of WMU. His desire is to see a world that realizes peace through prosperity - all people must prosper.

Mr Dawicki is a lead delegate at the UN's International Maritime Organization, has participated in the negotiations of several international maritime treaties since 1996 and is one of the most recognizable authorities on treaty compliance. His efforts to develop maritime safety and security programs have been recognized both domestically and internationally, including direct recognition by the UN Security Council. Projects have taken him to 85 nations with a concentration on North Africa and the Middle East as well as Eastern Europe. He was also a member of the United States' National Maritime Security Advisory Committee during the Bush and Obama Administrations.

Proudest of his career in the maritime industry, he began it at 16 years of age he joined the Coast Guard Reserve while in high school and college. After college he went to sea on an LNG Tanker as an Ordinary Seaman then became an Able Bodied Seaman, Boatswain and Third Mate.
