InterManager Salutes Capt. Vanderperre

Tuesday, September 22, 2009

InterManager, the international association of in-house and third party ship managers, has paid tribute to the life and memory of Captain Charles Vanderperre, the founder of Univan Ship Management and the long-accredited grandfather of modern day third party shipmanagement, who died at the age of 88.

In a statement, Guy Morel, General Secretary of the Association, said: “We salute his memory and applaud the work he did in driving forward the development of third party shipmanagement.  Many of today’s top managers owe their success to the wisdom of Capt Vanderperre and for this he will be sorely missed."

Captain Vanderperre, who handed over the responsibility for the day to day operations of Univan to the management team some months ago, passed away peacefully on 19th September, in his 88th year, after a long illness. A private funeral will take place in Thailand this week.
