Tuesday, July 08, 2003
Dr William H Moore will shortly be joining Shipowners Claims Bureau Inc. (SCB), managers of the American P&I Club, to take charge of its growing technical, safety and loss prevention activities. Dr Moore joins SCB from the Bergen office of Gard Services AS, where, as a vice president, he has had responsibility for the loss prevention, risk assessment and technical services of Gard’s substantial P&I and hull/machinery portfolios. An American, Dr Moore, 41, holds a doctorate in engineering, naval architecture and offshore engineering from the University of California at Berkeley, together with a master’s degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He moved from the United States to Norway in January 1999 and worked for what was then Vesta Marine & Energy before moving to Gard Services. Previously, he spent several years with the American Bureau of Shipping, latterly as manager of its human factors technology section, during which time he was the ABS representative to IACS in relation to its human element and formal safety assessment initiatives. In addition to being the author of many technical papers and other professional literature, Dr Moore maintains close connections with the IMO and has been a member of several of its committees and working groups. Announcing the news in New York, Joe Hughes, chairman and ceo of SCB, said: “We are delighted to welcome Bill Moore to the club’s management team. His exceptional qualifications, abilities, experience and industry reputation speak eloquently for themselves. He will bring an enhanced dynamic to the club’s initiatives in safety and loss prevention, adding greatly to the resources available to its members in this vitally important area.” Mr Hughes added: “He will have not only the support of his fellow managers, but also that of the club’s directors who, several years ago, established a dedicated safety and environmental protection committee in recognition of the key importance of this element of club activitiy.” Last month the American Club reported that entered tonnage is now at a record total of nearly 19m. gross tons.
