UK Club Promotes Edmonston to Director Role
Shipping protection and indemnity mutual insurer UK P&I Club has appointed Stuart Edmonston as director of loss prevention and ship inspections, following the retirement of Karl Lumbers.
Edmonston joined UK P&I Club in 2014 as loss prevention deputy director, having spent eight years at Holman Fenwick and Willan as a marine manager and casualty investigator. He is a master mariner and has spent time at sea in a wide variety of sectors including tankers, cruise ships, offshore supply and FPSO.
Lumbers’s retirement will see the end of a spell at the club dating back to 1986, following a 13 year career at sea and a spell ashore as a marine consultant. Lumbers began working in one of the claims syndicates and moved to take over the loss prevention role and responsibility for the quality of the club’s tonnage in 1992.
