Jebsen Named President of InterManager
InterManager, the third party and in-house ship management association, has appointed Bjørn Jebsen as its President with immediate effect.
Jebsen, who was elected unopposed at today’s InterManager AGM in Singapore, succeeds Gerardo Borromeo, Vice-Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Philippine Transmarine Carriers, who steps down after four years at the helm.
Speaking during his first address as President, Jebsen said, “I am a strong believer in the overall objective of InterManager, which is to improve the image of shipping, the position of ship managers and to support the careers of seafarers. I am looking forward to encouraging a cohesive dialogue between ship managers, owners and other stakeholders to build a sustainable future for our industry.”
Jebsen is Chief Executive Officer of Jebsens, one of the oldest family-run shipping companies, with over 220 onshore personnel and over 8,000 seafarers in its pool serving the global shipping industry.
Outgoing President Borromeo has represented InterManager on the world maritime stage, and has placed the importance of InterManager as a global shipping association firmly at the heart of his work.
Borromeo will continue as a Vice Chairman of the International Chamber of Shipping, as a member of the Executive Board of the World Maritime University and as Vice-Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Philippine Transmarine Carriers, Inc. (PTC), one of the largest crew management companies in the Philippines, with a total pool of 45,000 maritime professionals.
