Commenting on his appointment Jeffrey Evans said:
“I’m delighted and honoured to have been appointed Chairman to Maritime London and carrying on the work so ably handled by my predecessor David Moorehouse. This year is a particularly big year for us with London International Shipping Week taking place in September. This is a real chance for us to show shipowners and government just what a fantastic maritime cluster we have here in the UK. I look forward to banging the drum for the UK’s maritime services around the world.”
