Grimaldi named ICS chairman-designate
The ICS board of directors has named Emanuele Grimaldi ICS chair-designate. The managing director of the Grimaldi Group, a long-serving ICS board member and currently its deputy chairman, will follow Esben Poulsson as the next ICS chairman, subject to formal election at the ICS AGM in June 2022, when the latter steps down in a year’s time. Poulsson was elected chair of the ICS in 2016 and is currently serving his third term of office.
Grimaldi is a former president of Confitarma and ECSA. He will continue to work with secretary general Guy Platten on all ICS projects, including crew change, seafarer vaccinations and the reduction of GHG emissions in shipping. (amh)
