LISCR appoints new London office GM
The Liberian International Ship & Corporate Registry (LISCR), the U.S.-based manager of the Liberian Registry, has appointed Jonathan Spremulli as general manager of its dedicated office in London, in succession to Stuart Williams, with effect from August 2, 2010.
Mr. Spremulli joins LISCR from classification society RINA, where he was Group Quality Manager, based in Genoa, Italy. Prior to that he was based in London as Marine Training Manager for Lloyd's Register, with which he had an 18 years career that included a significant period in Asia surveying ships during construction. He is a chartered engineer with extensive seagoing experience as an officer with, among others, P&O Lines and Mobil Shipping.
"I am delighted to be joining the Liberian Registry, which continues to enjoy remarkable growth while maintaining its independently acknowledged reputation for the highest standards of safety worldwide," says Mr. Spremulli. "It is a quality organization, which does things the right way."
LISCR Chief Operating Officer Scott Bergeron says, "Jonathan Spremulli has nearly 30 years' experience of working in the shipping and certification sectors, and he has that ideal balance between management and seagoing experience that we value so highly. London is a strategically important location for international shipping, and therefore for the Liberian Registry. Jonathan's experience of the design, construction and operation of a wide range of vessels, and of dealing with masters, superintendents, surveyors and internal managers, ideally suits him for this role, in which he will add genuine value to the global service provided by the Liberian Registry."
