The Maritime Group (International) has extended its reach with membership of the UK Chamber of Shipping.
It has joined the leading trade organisation as it continues to expand with new business and offices worldwide.
Managing Director Captain Malcolm W Parrott and fellow directors attended the Chamber’s annual meeting where they were formally presented with TMG’s certificate of membership.
UK Chamber of Shipping president Sir Michael Bibby Bt performed the honours at the Chamber’s offices in Park Street, London.
Malcolm said: “The UK Chamber of Shipping has a long history and an excellent reputation and shares many of the same values as TMG. We are proud to have become members.”
“TMG has a very well established London office and we look forward to working closely with the Chamber and fellow members both in business and to promote the best interests of UK shipping.”
Malcolm also had the opportunity to renew old acquaintances at the annual meeting. He met with Captain Kevin Slade, who is Chairman of the MN Training Board, Captain John Garner, who is Operations Director of P&O Ferries and Maurice Storey, who is Chairman of Evergreen UK and a former Chief Executive of the MCA.
Maurice was Ship Manager of Sea Containers in the late 1970s and throughout the 1980s when Malcolm was a Senior Master. Both Kevin and John served as Malcolm’s Chief Officers.
TMG continues to grow after recently opening its TMG (Asia) office in Singapore. It has international reach with its headquarters in Seattle, USA, and regional offices in London, Honolulu and Singapore.
