Happy Birthday to INTERTANKO who turned 40 this month. And boy did they celebrate in style, with an anniversary dinner at the Royal Courts of Justice in London in the stunning Great Hall. Some 450 of the greatest and the best in shipping enjoyed a fabulous meal and entertainment befitting an industry that has plenty to be proud of! Chairman Graham Westgarth asked the gathered masses to be gentle to him as he recalled the history of the organisation and its achievements and paid tribute to past chairmen and particularly MD Peter Swift who retires later this year.

Spinnaker are continuing to work with the INTERTANKO Executive Committee on the search for a successor to Peter Swift. A final shortlist has been drawn up and interviews are well underway. Spinnaker and INTERTANKO would like to thank everyone who has applied and assisted with the search for what must be one of the most important and influential roles in shipping.

Thank you! Your subscription has been confirmed. You'll hear from us soon.
