Clay Maitland, Chairman of the North American Marine Environment Protection Association, announced that Morten Arntzen will moderate the Risk Management panel at this year’s North American World Maritime Day Observance being held on October 30th aboard the Hornblower Infinity in New York.

He has worked with companies all over the globe, through several industry cycles in all the major segments: tanker, bulk, container, gas, cruise and chemicals.

The 2013 North American World Maritime Day Observance will include opening remarks by RADM Joseph Servidio of the United States Coast Guard, followed by The Honorable Lisa Raitt, Minister of Transport for Canada.
