Craig Mullen
Craig Mullen has been a pioneer in exploring and working under the sea for over five decades. Following three tours with the Navy directing diving, salvage and deep-ocean recovery operations around the globe, he began what has been a lifelong passion, the exploration of world's great oceans. At Alcoa Marine, he directed the operations of the R/V Alcoa Seaprobe, the world's only all-aluminum drill-ship configured search and recovery system. The Seaprobe was capable of locating and recovering objects from 6,000 meters beneath the ocean. He directed the Seaprobe's gathering of the first recognizable photos of the civil war era wreck site of the USS Monitor and pioneered the development of deep-ocean work systems. In 1980, he co-founded Eastport International and was in the vanguard of the creation of robotic work systems that now routinely work in the great depths of the world's oceans. He directed some of the most complex ocean search and recovery operations including the Space Shuttle Challenger, Korean Airline 007, Air India, South African Airways, TWA 800 and numerous deep water shipwrecks, including the return to the SS Central America. In 2004, Craig was a co-founder of the AURORA Trust, that made cultural heritage history by discovering over 20 ancient shipwrecks in the Mediterranean Sea over a seven-year period.

Craig Mullen Director
A life long entrepreneur, Mr. Mullen has over 30 years experience in starting, growing and managing high technology businesses. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Western Illinois University in microbiology in 1966 and undertook graduate studies prior to becoming a Naval Officer during the Vietnam era.
In 1974 he joined Alcoa Marine, Inc., a subsidiary of the Aluminum Company of America (ALCOA), as Vice President of Operations. In 1980, he was part of a management team that purchased the subsidiary from ALCOA. Its name was changed to Eastport International, and Mr. Mullen served as its President from 1980 to 1993. Eastport International specialized in pioneering the use of robotic technology for undersea and land applications. Eastport also directed deep ocean operations for the US Government and numerous commercial clients and was adept in prototype product development. Mr. Mullen also co-founded Pressure Technologies, Inc. in 1989 and served as a Director until its acquisition by Carlton Technologies in 1998. Pressure Technologies specialized in the production of lightweight composite pressure vessels for aerospace, medical and defense applications.
In 1993, he negotiated the merger of Eastport with Oceaneering International. Asked to remain after the merger and grow its non-oil and gas business units, Mr. Mullen helped create the Advanced Technologies Group and served as its President until 1997, creating theme park robotics, undersea telecommunications and marine construction enterprise groups. The Advanced Technologies Group undertook client paid R&D, field operations, product development and manufacturing for NASA, AT&T, DARPA, US Navy, Universal Studios, Walt Disney, General Construction and many more. Mr. Mullen left Oceaneering in 1997 to form Sconset Ventures, Inc., a consulting and venture capital firm based on Nantucket Island, and joined Wastech International in 1999 as Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer.
