IMEC Appoints Dalela Training Manager

Tuesday, December 09, 2008

Captain Anand Dalela is to join IMEC beginning 1 January 2009 as its representative Training Manager in the Philippines.  The International Maritime Employers' Committee (IMEC) is an employers organization based in London. Captain Dalela will be taking over from Captain Cedric D’Souza who will be moving on to new opportunities in the United States.

Captain Dalela has experience sailing aboard product tankers, VLCCs and bulk carriers, having commenced his career as a cadet in 1993. On passing the examinations required to attain his Master’s Certificate in 2002 he continued sailing as Chief Officer until 2005 when he was given his first command of the bulk carrier Federal Rhine. He continued sailing as Master of various vessels through Anglo-Eastern Ship Management of Hong Kong until April 2008.
 
More recently working ashore, in October Captain Dalela was appointed as Training Consultant to FMFI Maritime Foundation Inc in Manila and has gained invaluable knowledge in the training and development of Filipino Seafarers which will be put to excellent use in his new role.
 
Holding a Bachelor of Science Degree from Ajmer University, Rajasthan, Captain Dalela has acquired experience in management both at sea and ashore in key areas such as human resources practice, finance and the operation of quality management systems, that will bring added value to his role with IMEC where he will administer IMEC’s growing commitment to recruitment and training initiatives in the Philippines. During 2009 this will involve doubling the number of cadets under sponsorship at the University of Cebu and sponsoring 150 cadets at the Maritime Academy of Asia and the Pacific for the first time. He will be based at the recently opened IMEC Office in Malate.
 
Commenting on Captain Dalela's appointment, IMEC Chairman, Ian Sherwood said: "We are very pleased to be able to appoint Anand to this role. Whilst of course, we are very sorry to lose Cedric D’Souza, who has more than met our expectations in the start up of IMEC’s training initiatives in the Philippines, we understand that he wishes to follow other opportunities and we feel that Anand is a highly suitable replacement to build on the work already started. I believe his range of skills and enthusiasm will undoubtedly assist in the development of the IMEC training programs and that he will very rapidly become a focal point for the co-ordination of our activities in the Far East."
