The International Propeller Club named Maritime Administrator Sean T. Connaughton the 2007 Maritime Person of the Year at its 81st annual International Convention held in Athens, Greece. Administrator Connaughton was honored for his “leadership, vision and determination for an innovative, competitive and vibrant U.S. maritime industry.”

Bart Goedhard, Chief Operating Officer of the International Propeller Club of the United States, said the 10,000 members of the Propeller Club of the United States chose to recognize Administrator Connaughton for his outstanding leadership within the maritime community. He “has brought about ideas and supported issues that will provide positive changes to those in the maritime industry.”
