Tom Birbeck has experience in commercial diving, aquaculture, and sustainable fishing. He co-founded ARC Marine after extensive research into man-made reefs which led to the prototyping and subsequent invention of Reef Cubes® technology. Mr Birbeck successfully led the company through a seed round of investment and the R&D phase of Reef Cubes®, while establishing ARC Marine in the "deep techĒ sector in which it gained momentum.
ARC Marine is preparing for a £10m Series A investment round with an ideal investor consortium of like-minded marine conservationists and strategic partners in offshore construction with a broad demographic to help realise their global plans. Tomís vision is for ARC Marine to pioneer the unrealised opportunity to convert every offshore construction project into a thriving marine ecosystem that can be designated for marine conservation, habitat restoration, sustainable fishing and restocking programs or, most importantly, scientific monitoring and proactive management for long term sustainable oceans.
