In his new role, Christian Mollitor will augment the registry leadership team's marketing and business development efforts, oversee head office support of the global network of regional offices, and manage special projects. He says, "I am pleased to have the opportunity to return to LISCR. The last twelve years of my career have given me a greater perspective of the needs of the shipping industry and a specific view of how the premier maritime administrator, LISCR, can best provide regulatory compliance services."
Scott Bergeron, CEO, says, "We are delighted to have been able to recruit Christian back to the registry. His experience and academic achievements will serve us well as the registry continues its global expansion.
