Shipmate of the Week – Charles Zerbe

For more than a century, U.S. Coast Guard Yard workers have built, repaired and renovated ships. A major part of this century-long tradition is Charles Zerbe, a 48-year veteran of federal service at the yard. A native of Baltimore, Zerbe began his employment at the yard in 1965 as a shipfitter helper. Due to his leadership abilities and skills he was promoted many times and ultimately reached the level of the highest graded civil service employee at the yard, production manager.

The yard boasts of some of the best workers and management in the maritime industry. At the yard, dedicated coaches are behind the shipyard team. The production manager, the “head coach,” and four general foremen, the “assistant coaches,” provide workers with essential leadership and support needed to be successful. Each coach works in a specialized sector and brings his own game plan to the table to help create a winning organization. With its talented roster, the yard has a long heritage of wins to keep the Coast Guard fleet operating and accomplish vital missions.
