Cyprus based ship management company Unicom has joined InterManager, the international trade association which represents third party and in-house ship managers.
Unicom – which provides a full range of ship management services to almost 90 vessels, specializing particularly in Arctic operations – joined InterManager as a Full Member following a meeting in Limassol with InterManager Secretary General, Captain Kuba Szymanski, last week. “We at Unicom felt this was the right time to join InterManager,” said Sergey Popravko, Managing Director of Unicom. “We look forward to collaborating with fellow ship management companies,” he continued, “to the benefit of our sector and to ensuring that ship managers gain the recognition they deserve within the international maritime industry.”
Professional ship management services are increasingly in demand, as the shipping industry continues to grow in both size and status. As a result, being part of a recognized international industry body is of great importance, Capt. Szymanski explained. “We are delighted to welcome Unicom to our membership and look forward to its active participation in InterManager,” he commented.
InterManager represents the interests of the ship management sector on the global maritime stage, particularly at meetings of the International Maritime Organisation and other key industry bodies. The association has been steadily growing in recent years and its membership now represents more than 5,000 vessels and almost 300,000 crew members
In addition, its members work together to improve the performance and efficiency of global ship-management, highlight and share best practice and initiate and implement meaningful performance monitoring across the world.
