Singpore: Asia Shipping Media (ASM), the publishers of GulfShip News, have appointed Helen Ong as sales director. Helen brings with her 16 years of publishing and advertising expertise including six in maritime at the likes of Lloyd’s List and more recently Seatrade.
Helen has experience in bespoke publishing, managing niche titles such as the Seatrade Singapore Bunkering Report. Helen will be working across all ASM’s titles as well as leading new projects for the fast expanding Singapore-headquartered firm.
Commented Grant Rowles, ASM’s commercial director, “Bringing Helen onboard is a statement of intent for our growth aspirations in 2014 and beyond. In just two years we have developed four unique media brands and we now want to consolidate these as well as looking at other publishing opportunities as they arise, especially given the redrawn maritime media landscape with so many other titles scaling back.” [08/01/14]
