According to MANA, “KR’s new chairman has extensive field survey experience and has contributed significantly to the enhancement of KR’s global port state control response. He has also played a key role in increasing KR’s global scope, gaining important authorizations to provide statutory services on behalf of shipping and maritime organizations, particularly in Germany and Canada,” the register said.
The new chairman and chief executive said that under his leadership the register would look to diversify its business.
Mr Lee said: “KR is facing many challenges following the prolonged downturn of the shipping and shipbuilding industries, and as a result of the liberalisation of classification services in Korea. I am keen to support and enhance our services under these conditions.”
