retiring President Alastair Evitt.

InterManager members attending this year’s Annual General Meeting on Thursday (October 11) will thank retiring President Alastair Evitt for his work at the helm of the association over the past two years.

 

During his Presidency Mr Evitt has represented InterManager on the world maritime stage, working on behalf of its members to ensure the views of the shipmanagement industry are heard and understood and to campaign for better treatment for seafarers. In particular he has been at the forefront of the international battle against piracy, both on behalf of InterManager and, latterly, as Chairman of the Save Our Seafarers campaign.

 

Alastair Evitt is a Master Mariner with almost 40 years’ experience in the marine industry. He spent 15 years working at sea before coming ashore to work in ship management. His diverse ship management experience has included postings in Cyprus and Singapore in management roles for a large third party manager. He returned to the UK in 2004 to take up his present position as Managing Director of Liverpool-based Meridian Marine Management.

 

Alastair has previously served on the committees of both the Cyprus Shipping Council and the Singapore Shipping Association and was appointed as a Councillor to the Singapore Shipping Association in 2003. 

 

Thanking Mr Evitt for his enthusiastic work, InterManager Secretary General Captain Kuba Szymanski said: “During his term of office Alastair has dedicated a great deal of time and energy to InterManager and we are very grateful for all his hard work on our behalf.”

 

Mr Evitt steps down from the role (all InterManager Presidents serve for two years) at Thursday’s AGM in Copenhagen, Denmark.

 

Alastair Evitt said: “It has been a challenging and enjoyable two years. I am very grateful for the fantastic support given to me by Kuba and the Secretariat. However, we must not look backwards or even sideways but to the future and I look forward to supporting the new President. My parting wish is in respect to the fight against piracy – the whole maritime industry must not get complacent in the light of recent naval successes. Now is the time to maintain or increase our efforts to drive our piracy message home.”
