InterManager, the international trade association for the ship management industry, has boosted its membership with several new members joining its ranks during the first quarter of this year.
Full members joining include ship management company Nigeria LNG and crew manager Nedcon. They are joined by Associate members KVH, Cubisol, Jadran Pismo and Stark Moore Macmillan. Speaking as the InterManager Executive Committee Meeting in Athens today (June 7) InterManager President Alastair Evitt said: “I am pleased to report that InterManager is increasingly receiving applications for membership from a range of shipmanagement and related maritime businesses. I believe the shipping community is becoming more and more aware of the benefits of speaking with one voice on key issues and recognises the role bodies like InterManager can play in representing their interests and speaking out for the industry.”
Mr Evitt pointed out that incidents like the arrest and criminalisation of Hebei Spirit captain and first officer had highlighted how effectively InterManager can work on behalf of the ship and crew management community and how successfully it could operate with other industry organizations.
