New Thome Head of Tanker Crewing Operations - Henrik Bisbo
It is with great excitement and equally great expectations that I have taken over the position as Head of Tanker Crewing Operations with Thome Ship Management based in Singapore as from 17 February 2014. I shall be replacing Reji Joseph and will report to the Chief Operations Officer tankers as part of the Thome tanker division management team.
The shipping industry in general, and the tanker segment in particular, have undergone tremendous changes over the past years, and everything points in the direction of even more changes to come. At Thome we take great pride in being at the forefront of the industry in all aspects, and very few people involved in shipping will disagree that the single most important asset to any company is its staff. Our ships will go nowhere without you and your dedicated work and efforts in a taxing and strenuous environment.
A married family man and a proud ex-seafarer with almost twenty years at sea followed by another almost twenty years in shore based positions in shipping companies in Asia, Africa and Europe, I feel confident that we can work together towards an even better and brighter future for the company and for each of us individually. To achieve that a positive and constructive communication is paramount, and I am confident that we can establish such a positive and constructive dialogue by means of personal contact at seminars, during visits to your ships or your visits to the office in Singapore or elsewhere. Our dedicated team in the crewing department in Singapore together with all the crewing offices in Asia and Europe will work closely with you to ensure a mutually beneficial relationship.
Whatever thoughts and ideas you might have on how to improve on safety, security, procedures and anything else you might think of, please bring them forward. We at the office depend on your input from the ships to be able to effect changes where needed. A new initiative aimed at facilitating an efficient communication on such matters is under way, and you will receive more information about this shortly.
Our crewing executives are your primary contacts in the office for day to day issues, but in case of urgent and serious matters, please feel free to contact me directly at: email@example.com or call me at +65 6329 4327.
I am looking very much forward to embarking on this journey with you.
