New President and Vice President Shipping Federation

New President and Vice President

After the Federation’s AGM on Friday 29 July, the Federation is pleased to advise that Clive Glover is now President and Keith Brown is Vice President.

Clive Glover is well known to the sector as General Manager, Marine Operations at Strait NZ, he has previously managed NIWA Vessels and was responsible for the build and delivery of the Tangaroa. Mr Glover was formerly the Vice President of the Federation.

Captain Brown came to New Zealand in October 2017 to take up as General Manager, Silver Fern Shipping. He has 29 years’ experience in the industry, both afloat and ashore.

Mr Glover thanked the outgoing President, Steve Chapman for his service to the Federation as President for 3 years and VP for the previous 3 years. Mr Chapman remains on the Council.

“The Federation has an important role in the political infrastructure of New Zealand as the representative of an important part of the transport sector. Maritime issues are important strategically and the Federation can help to ensure that government is well informed when it makes decisions that affect the sector, “said Mr Glover.

“As incoming President, I will be reviewing with every member what they expect from the Federation. It is also a good time to review our gaols and processes to ensure that we are maximising the value of membership by meeting members needs and expectations.”
