International Submarine Engineering
The answer to this belongs to a lot of people. However, if I narrow it down I would say Jim McFarlane Sr, President of ISE in Vancouver. I worked for Jim in the very early days of ROVs. Whilst I had been on manned sub ops for two years, his knowledge of design and concept from first principles has stood me in good stead ever since and has enabled me to develop my own company along these essential parameters.
