Thome Ship Management Pte Ltd – ROHQ
The Thome Group won the “Excellence in Maritime Services/Ship Management” at the Lloyd’s List Asia Pacific awards event held at the Shangri-La Hotel in Singapore on 17th October 2019.
Winning such a prestigious event is a tremendous achievement and it is thanks to the hard work and dedication of Thome’s ship management and services teams that we have been recognised in this way.
At another high profile maritime industry week of events in London, our CEO Olav Nortun represented the Thome Group at two Roundtable events during London International Shipping Week (LISW) which ran from 9th to 12th September.
LISW saw over 20,000 delegates descend on the capital during the week with over 200 events taking place in and around the city of London. Many events saw senior UK government Ministers attend and participate in many of the conferences, meetings, receptions and debates on key issues affecting the global maritime industry.
Mr Nortun made valuable contributions at both Roundtable events speaking from his experience as the CEO of the Thome Group and his knowledge of classification issues which he gained when he worked for DNV-GL.
The Thome Group also sent two delegates to the Scandinavian island of Donsö to attend Sweden’s biggest shipping event called the Donsö Shipping Meet (DSM).
Capt. Jones Tulod, President of TSM Shipping (Phils.), Inc., and Per Selmer-Olsen, Vice President of Thome Ship Management Pte. Ltd,- ROHQ, represented the Thome Group and attended many networking conferences and workshops to promote the Thome Group’s expertise in operational and procedural excellence.
Getting nominated for awards, attending high profile events and participating on panels and Roundtables really puts the Thome Group at the forefront of prospective customers’ minds and helps improve the Group’s chances of winning more business. This is why it is so important that Thome is actively involved in key industry events to keep the momentum of the Group’s growth and strategic initiatives on an upward trend.
