The Liberian Registry has announced new appointments in a number of areas within the global network of offices operated by its US-based manager, the Liberian International Ship & Corporate Registry (LISCR).
 
Gerard Kenny has been appointed Technical Manager of the Liberian Registry’s London office, where he will primarily serve as a technical advisor to the Liberian delegations to the IMO. A former technical manager and class surveyor with Lloyd’s Register in London and DNV in Sydney, Kenny was most recently Chief Marine Surveyor with the Virgin Islands Shipping Registry. 
 
Rafael Cigarruista has been appointed Manager of the Registry’s regional office in Panama which, in common with other flags, Liberia established to provide direct services to ships transiting the Panama Canal. Cigarruista  is a former independent nautical engineer with extensive experience of class and statutory surveys.
 
Pinar Saglam has been appointed Corporate & Registrations Co-ordinator for the Liberian Registry’s office in Istanbul. Previously a Financial Planner with Furtrans Shipping Group, Saglam will be closely involved in daily operations and will also serve as a Special Agent for the Registry.
 
In the US, meanwhile, Josiah Toepfer has been appointed Manager, Vessel & Company Compliance in the Liberian Registry’s main headquarters office, located in Virginia. His role will be to ensure compliance with Port State Control regulations, and to minimise deficiencies and detentions. A former USCG PSC inspector, Toepfer  joins the Registry from Sparrow Marine, a shipping audit and consulting company which he founded.
