New Business Development Manager, Carlos E. Avila | New Bedford Ocean Cluster


The NBOC is very pleased to introduce our new Business Development Manager to you this month. Carlos E. Avila, MSFM, joins the team after making a notable impact at both the Massachusetts Maritime Academy and Bristol Community College. 

At Mass Maritime, Carlos was the Assistant Director of Admissions with special responsibility for international recruitment initiatives. At Bristol, he collaborated with Offshore Wind industry partners by connecting prospective applicants to training opportunities at the community college as Associate Director of College Access. Later, as Associate Director of Career and Technical Trainings, he was a National Offshore Wind Institute (NOWI) audit team member assisting in preparation for Global Wind Organisation (GWO) accreditation of the nation’s first, purpose-built Offshore Wind training facility in New Bedford, MA.

“The Board of Directors and I are thrilled to have Carlos join the NBOC as our new Business Development Manager,” comments NBOC Executive Director Jennifer Downing. “Carlos brings to his role experience in offshore wind, as well as other maritime sectors. He is passionate about strengthening the region’s blue economy and committed to diversity and equal opportunity in the process. Carlos has demonstrated in his previous positions at Bristol Community College and Massachusetts Maritime that he is an excellent relationship builder, networker, and driven to get things done and see results. As we continue to build our membership and programs to support greater New Bedford’s maritime businesses, this is exactly what we need. I’m excited to work with him.”
