Maritime London has found a replacement for Doug Barrow as its latest chief executive. Jos Standerwick, currently director of development and external affairs at international maritime charity The Mission to Seafarers, will take up his new position at the municipal promotional body in July. Barrow shifted to become director of the UK Ship Register this January after 11 years at Maritime London.
The chairman of Maritime London, Lord Mountevans said on the appointment: “We are delighted to be bringing in to our organisation someone of Jos’s calibre at this pivotal time for both our nation and our industry.”
Standerwick commented: “This is a very exciting, if challenging, time for our industry and there has never been a greater need for a proactive trade association to fight for the best operational environment and to engage with the global industry to attract investment to the UK maritime sector. My prime objective will to ensure that the United Kingdom and London remain at the heart of the global maritime business.”
