ESS Appoints Four New Board Members

Monday, June 20, 2011

Electronic Shipping Solutions, a provider of electronic shipping documents, announces four senior appointments to its main Board. These new members bring experience from the shipping, ports, legal and finance sectors to ESS and underpin its expansion into the container shipping market, following the successful roll-out of the ESS CargoDocs solution for electronic bills of lading in the bulk liquid markets.

Well-known names from the ports and liner shipping sector, André Toet and Nigel Pusey, join legal expert Noel Buttigieg-Scicluna on the board. Finance specialist Robert Mai succeeds James Fields, who is stepping down.

Toet brings 25 years of maritime experience at P&O Nedlloyd, Maersk and Port of Rotterdam to the ESS board. By the end of 2011 he will be appointed as the new CEO for SIPC (Sohar Industrial Port Company) in Oman. He has held several supervisory board positions, of which PortInfolink, subsequently Portbase, directly supports his role as non-executive board member for ESS.

Pusey was until recently CEO of Container Inland Services, a division of the AP Moller–Maersk Group, probably the most highly regarded company active in the shipping, energy and offshore markets. Previously he has held senior management roles in Maersk Shipping, P&O Nedlloyd and was non-executive Chairman of INTTRA.

Mai is Vice President of Klingenstein, Fields & Co, a leading investment advisory firm, where his role includes managing the firm’s Alternative Investments portfolio and fixed income trading platform.

Buttigieg-Scicluna is a consultant with EMD, a multidisciplinary firm bringing together legal and financial services and related disciplines and a long serving Board Secretary on a number of Malta-based companies and interests. His previous experience includes being a Minister in the Malta government and an Ambassador to numerous European countries.
