Cayman Shipping Registry Names Hong Kong Representative

by Mary Swire,, Hong Kong

11 February 2009

In a recent move to further expand its global network, the Cayman Islands Shipping Registry (CISR) has named Mr Martin Chu as its first representative in Hong Kong, opening up a new location for the shipping registry.

Mr Chu joins the Registry as CISR Business and Technical Consultant, Far East.

Hong Kong marks the ninth location in the world to have CISR representation. CISR is a division of the Maritime Authority of the Cayman Islands (MACI).

Last year, Ms Evelyn Soon was named as the first CISR representative in Singapore. Also in the Far East is Mr Yoshinori Uno, who has been the CISR representative in Tokyo for several years, attracting a number of large commercial vessels to the Cayman flag.

Commenting on his appointment, Mr Chu stated:

"It is widely acknowledged that the Cayman fleet quality is benchmarked as a leading industry standard and I am delighted to be given the opportunity to join the Cayman Islands Shipping Registry to contribute to its continued success. I also look forward to working with the CISR global team to build upon our existing portfolio and consolidate the Registry's leadership profile in the Far East Region."

MACI CEO, Mr A. Joel Walton, welcomed the announcement of Chu's appointment.

"Mr. Chu has impeccable credentials in the maritime industry and we had been wanting to establish a CISR presence in Hong Kong for some time now", he explained, adding:

"Mr Chu is a Senior Surveyor at the highest level who will complement the rest of our very professional global survey staff and provide our excellent client services to owners of all types of vessels. He has a sterling and extensive background across a wide spectrum of maritime disciplines and greatly adds to our organization's broad range of nautical expertise."

Mr Chu was lastly the Senior Surveyor in Charge and Hong Kong District Manager for Lloyd's Register, managing the entire operation of the Hong Kong district.

Prior to his assignment to Hong Kong, Mr Chu also spent a couple of years as an Engineer Surveyor for a major repair shipyard in Guangzhour, China, and was a Project Manager for the new building of an oil tanker for Singapore.
