Swift Appointed Foundation GM

Thursday, June 07, 2007
Captain Peter J. Swift has been appointed as the General Manager of the Maritime Industry Foundation. He takes up his new position with effect from June 2007. Before joining the Maritime Industry Foundation, Captain Swift spent forty eight years in the maritime industry. Twenty of those years were at sea, with command experience on LNG carriers, OBOs and aframax tankers. Shore experience included marine operations and technical management positions with P & O Bulk Shipping Division, Globtik Tankers and Overseas Shipholding Group, both in Europe and in the U.S. The Maritime Industry Foundation has set itself the exciting challenge of persuading all the diverse but complementary elements of the international maritime industry to work together and contribute to the Foundation’s objectives. “This is to explain the massive and largely unrecognized contribution our industry has made and continues to make to the international community” said Captain Swift.
