It fills me with enourmous pride and great pleasure to be appointed as our chairman.
Having been a member for 15 plus years and on the committee for the last 3 years i have seen the club evolve, as the industry has and want to ensure the work which has been carried out from past chairmen continues under my tenure.
It excites me to see young mixing with experience and therefore its up to the senior members of the club to welcome in ‘new blood’ whilst ensuring the values of such a prestigous club are maintained.
Starting in the shipping dept at british ropes (Bridon) at the age of 16 as office junior, dean became sales representative for an nvo (ocean express / confreight) and has progressed over 20 years within the industry to being the commercial director at Globelink fallow, whilst also undertaking a role in europe (Globelinks hq is in Singapore “representative” for their global accounts).
I’ve definitely had some career highs, but this definitely tops the lot. I’m very, very proud to represent our members and leaders of our industry and hope to meet with as many as possible to ensure the club continues to grow from stregth to strength.
