Scott Bergeron has been appointed Chief Executive Officer of the Liberian International Ship & Corporate Registry (LISCR), the US-based manager of the Liberian Registry.

Bergeron joined LISCR in 2000 as Chief Operating Officer. Prior to that, he developed a wide range of experience in the shipping industry, working for shipowner/manager Laurin Maritime, for Det Norske Veritas and for the US Coast Guard, as well as gaining practical seagoing experience on a variety of different types of ship.  

Yoram Cohen and Adam Cohen will remain as Chairman and Executive Vice-Chairman, respectively, of LISCR. In these capacities, they will continue their active leadership of LISCR’s operations, and governance over its strategic direction and cohesive management.

Commenting on Bergeron’s appointment, Yoram Cohen says, “We are delighted that Scott Bergeron has agreed to accept the appointment as CEO of LISCR. Scott is an experienced shipping professional who understands what responsible ship owners and operators want from a modern ship registry. His organisational leadership, business acumen and commercial drive make him ideally suited to this role. We are happy to have him as part of our team at LISCR.”

Adam Cohen adds, “With the help of the Liberian Maritime Authority, Scott and LISCR’s professional staff, the Liberian Registry has enjoyed a period of remarkable growth since LISCR assumed management responsibility for the flag in 2000. In that time, the Liberian-flag fleet has more than doubled in size. Today, it stands at 3,700 vessels, aggregating 120m gross tons - an all-time record. I am certain that Scott will drive the registry on to even greater heights.”

Bergeron, expressing his gratitude to LISCR’s Chairman and Executive Vice-Chairman for the trust they have shown in him, says, “I am honoured to accept this new appointment. I am proud of what LISCR has achieved over the past ten years and grateful to my colleagues who have been essential in achieving this success. As with every other aspect of shipping, it is about the people, not simply the numbers. While the Liberian-flag fleet has been growing, the registry has continued to expand on its capabilities and experience, earn independent recognition of its technical and operational excellence and improve its outstanding safety record.”

Promising to build on LISCR’s successful track record as a premier shipping registry, Bergeron says, “The fleet is still growing – by more than 20 per cent over the past twelve months in terms of numbers of ships, and more than 10 per cent when measured in gross tons. There is more to come. Our success is down to teamwork, and I relish the opportunity to continue working with Yoram and Adam and my colleagues at LISCR, and the Liberian Government, to provide a service which responsible ship owners clearly need and want.”
