The U.S. Coast Guard announced that a civilian employee of the service is the U.S. candidate for Secretary General of the International Maritime Organization. Jeffrey Lantz, the Coast Guard’s Director for Commercial Regulations and Standards, will be a candidate in the International Maritime Organization’s elections scheduled for the 106thInternational Maritime Organization Council in London, June 27 to July 1, 2011. 
 
Lantz is responsible for developing U.S. national maritime safety and environmental protection regulations and policies.  He also oversees U.S. initiatives in the development of international maritime safety, security and environmental protection standards.
 
“Jeff is one of the Coast Guard's best senior leaders who has superbly managed commercial maritime regulation with the care and precision it requires," said Coast Guard Commandant Adm. Bob Papp. "He is a skilled engineer, effective manager and strong negotiator who has demonstrated a keen ability to lead and overcome budgetary and technical challenges over his 36-year career.  These strong regulatory and supervisory abilities have enabled him to greatly improve the quality of U.S. commercial shipping.  I am absolutely certain he will deliver the same quality and competency if elected as Secretary General of the International Maritime Organization."
