Chamber of Shipping President Jesper Kjaedegaard has been named the new chairman of One Voice.
One Voice brings together the shipping, ports and maritime business services sectors in the UK on key strategic and practical issues of joint interest. This collective approach creates a stronger, louder voice for the maritime services sector, and is already helping to improve links with Government and other audiences.
Mr Kjaedegaard assumes his duties as part of a rotating chairmanship and follows Mr Michael Drayton of the Baltic Exchange with immediate effect.
Mr Kjaedegaard said:
"It is a privilege to have been appointed as the new chairman. Since the inception of One Voice just over a year ago a lot of progress has been made - but there is still a lot more to be done. One Voice is in a prime position to communicate the priorities of the maritime services sector through a bold agenda of political activity."
"The months ahead will see us set out our message clearly and effectively through the launch of a new website and manifesto. It is an exciting time, but the economic and environmental challenges we face are significant. We in the maritime services will best meet these challenges by working together closely through the One Voice initiative."More Articles by Chamber of Shipping ...
