Handing over the baton at WSC

The board of the World Shipping Council (WSC) has appointed Joe Kramek as its new president and CEO, to succeed John Butler when he retires at the end of July.


Kramek brings a wealth of experience and expertise to his new role, from both the maritime sector and government service. He previously served as WSC's director of US government relations.


Kramek's professional career includes twenty-eight years as a commissioned officer with the US Coast Guard, where he spent time at sea and as the chief of maritime, international, and environmental law. Notably, he led the US delegation to the International Maritime Organisation's legal committee during his Coast Guard tenure.


Kramek’s task will be to “lead the organisation into its next phase of development, working for the continued advancement of responsible, environmentally sustainable, safe and secure global maritime trade,” WSC said in a press release. (cj)
