Scoville brings with him a diverse background in subsea vehicles, inspection, and engineering as well as a passion for deep sea discovery and exploration.
“We couldn’t be more excited about Dan joining the team, he has a wealth of subsea experience and a sense of adventure that fits in perfectly with the culture we have cultivated here at OceanGate,” said Stockton Rush, OceanGate CEO, “As we continue to grow it is rewarding to see the variety of industries who have taken notice of what we are doing, and the positive impact it has had on the caliber of talent we are attracting to our business.”
As director of Systems Integration and Marine Operations Scoville will oversee operational engineering for OceanGate’s fleet of three manned submersibles.

“I am thrilled to be joining OceanGate as they pioneer the next generation of manned submersibles,” said Scoville. “To date, much of my subsea exploration has been accomplished through the lens of an ROV camera. This next chapter of my career combines my professional skillset with my passion for exploration and discovery where I will have an opportunity to personally explore and observe the deep ocean.”
