The Liberian International Ship & Corporate Registry (LISCR), a member of the YCF Group of companies and exclusive administrator of the world’s largest quality ship register, has appointed Christian Mollitor to the position of vice president.

This newly created role represents a return to LISCR for Mollitor. Having formerly held the position of Assistant Department Head of Seafarer Certification and Documentation, he left the registry in 2001 to further develop his career. This included practising law in Alaska and carrying out maritime and environmental regulatory compliance roles at Royal Caribbean International and Holland America Line.

During that time, he served as the NorthWest Cruiseship Association’s representative to Washington State’s ballast water policy work group and as co-director of the joint US Coast Guard/Holland America Line cruise ship mass rescue operation exercise held in Ketchikan, Alaska.

Mollitor, a graduate of the United States Merchant Marine Academy and Tulane University Law School, also recently earned his Master of Business Administration from Western Washington University. He is a member of the Alaska Bar and the Maritime Law Association of the United States.

In his new role, Christian Mollitor will augment the registry leadership team’s marketing and business development efforts, oversee head office support of the global network of regional offices and manage special projects. He said, “I am pleased to have the opportunity to return to LISCR. The last twelve years of my career have given me a greater perspective of the needs of the shipping industry and a specific view of how the premier maritime administrator, LISCR, can best provide regulatory compliance services.”

Scott Bergeron, CEO, said, “We are delighted to have been able to recruit Christian back to the registry. His experience and academic achievements will serve us well as the registry continues its global expansion. It is always deeply satisfying to have great employees return to the company after further developing their credentials.”
