Hi, nice to see you here, I am Mark, the co-founder of OCRE.
On this blog I will guide you through the existence and evolution of OCRE. Be warned, this might contain some in-depth information and some personal views. 😉 But for now, let’s start with the very basics. OCRE was founded in 2007 and was a pursuit of dreams to start as an entrepreneur in a diversity of market segments, busy improving HR dynamics within companies.
OCRE, just as ROME, wasn’t built in one day. Let me take you back to 30 years ago. It was a nice day during summer 1989. I just finished my study Geology; Micropaleontology to be more precise. Maybe you know what it entails, but I can imagine not everyone does. Therefore, for the ones who do not know yet; it’s a study focused on the evolution of organisms and what this tells us about the earth’s history.
As I was just graduated and full of confidence and energy, I was ready to make my debut in the wide world! Some might say I was slightly idealistic, and I could not agree more. I liked to view myself as driven and focused for my first adventurous job, where I got the opportunity to discover new cultures and new continents. As I vividly recall, this opportunity was provided to me by the offshore industry.
Why did I choose the Offshore industry to work in? This I will tell you in my next blog, where I will take you on a journey explaining my thoughts on why the market segment of “Offshore” is so interesting.
