Kevin Shakesheff apointed Vice President of the Institute
Posted on Monday, February 15, 2021
On Monday 8th February there was a Special General Meeting of
the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers to elect the nomination of
Vice President. The meeting was well attended with over 80
members joining the online meeting.
At the last AGM, members voted to accept the Chairman's motion
to extend the tenure of the current President for six months until
8th April 2021. At the AGM and subsequently to our branches,
there was a call for nominations to be considered for Vice
President. It has been tradition for the President to nominate
their Vice President, however Lord Mountevens wanted our Institute
to be more inclusive, open and to ensure that the net is cast
appropriately widely, so he asked the Institute to invite
nominations for the position of Vice President. There was great
interest in the position. Nominations were submitted from
branches, individual members and a non-members. All nominations
were of the highest calibre. It was an incredibly difficult
decision, principally because of how the role has changed recently.
The Institute needs a President who can work with the Senior
Officers and contribute to the Institute and the business in a way
that has not been necessary previously. It is this hands-on
requirement that guided the search for the right person.
After much deliberation the President nominated Kevin Shakesheff
FICS as Vice President of the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers.
Kevin has a great knowledge of the Institute and has extensive
business experience. Kevin has been a member since 1974, Institute
Chairman 2007-09 and has been active within the North East of
England and South Wales and the West branches for many years as
well as being on Federation Council. Kevin is Chairman and former
Managing Director of Casper Shipping, a leading UK port agency,
logistics and marine services business. He is also Co-Founder and
former Chairman of the High Tide Foundation - an independent
charitable foundation that delivers life changing career
experiences for young people and increases awareness and engagement
within the shipping sector and its supply chain. Kevin is currently
Vice Chairman of the Mission To Seamans (North Tees and
Hartlepool). He has an unwavering passion for education, supporting
young people and for the Institute.
Kevin was approved as Vice President and recieved many comments
of support during the SGM.
