Guinea Shipping Corporation names new executive chairman
Guinea Shipping Corporation (GSC) has appointed Bernt Meldgaard Christensen as the company's new executive chairman. Christensen has a wealth of experience in the maritime industry spanning more than 30 years and will be responsible for leading the new team. He succeeds his brother Henrik, who founded the company in 2010 and sadly passed away recently.
"My brother had a vision to build a shipping line for Guinea that also provides a platform to help develop the country's own maritime industry. I will carry on with that work and strengthen our ties with Guinea's maritime sector with a view to helping local people build careers as international seafarers," Christensen said.
In other news, GSC has chosen Paul Bevan as its director in Hong Kong. Bevan has more than 25-years' experience of working in shipping, transportation, logistics and equipment leasing. (mw)
