I am pleased to announce that on Monday 4 July Lord Fairfax will join Sovcomflot Group in the capacity of Deputy Managing Director of Fiona Maritime Agencies Ltd., London and as Risk Management Strategist for the Sovcomflot Group.
Nicholas Fairfax has worked in the shipping and insurance market for over 20 years during which time he has become one of the most well-known and well-respected figures operating in that sphere. After qualifying as a lawyer Nicholas worked at the UK P&I Club with responsibility for the business of the Russian Fleets before moving in 1990 to Sedgwick Group - second largest insurance broker in the world and then to PL Ferrari, the leading P&I broker where he has been managing director of their London office.
In addition to his responsibilities in the Sovcomflot London office and for Group Risk Management strategy Nicholas will also be a member of our senior management team where he will deal with loss prevention issues and will be involved in claims handling and other legal matters.
I would like to welcome Nicholas very warmly to the Sovcomflot Group and to wish him every success.
