Press Release   •   Feb 25, 2013 10:31 +08

In just one month Maritime CEO has canvassed some of the most important names in the shipping industry as it positions itself as the hub for gaining exclusive insights into what the top people in the industry are thinking.

In its first 30 days days of launching Maritime CEO has interviewed the world’s largest: shipmanager; breakbulk operator; and product tanker owner. Moreover, readers have been able to read the opinions of the ceos of Hong Kong’s OOCL and Wah Kwong plus the market sentiments of one of the world’s largest privately-owned freight trading groups. And for those who missed it, last week saw Maritime CEO chat with Clive Palmer, the Australian mining tycoon who plans to build Titanic II.

In its bid to cover all facets of the industry the first few weeks have also seen Maritime CEO profile internationally famous marine equipment manufacturers and other service providers including class society heads, registries, brokers and training institutions.

“It has been a strong start to our new global title,” commented Sam Chambers, editorial director of Maritime CEO’s parent firm, Asia Shipping Media (ASM), “and there is so much more lined up. Our owner lineup from across the world in the coming months is genuinely second to none.”

Correspondents from five continents have covered 20 senior executives from eight different countries in the first four weeks.

Maritime CEO has also made a considerable splash via social media with debate, comment and polls on our LinkedIn group, which is closing in on its 1,000th member just three months after it started active use, while Maritime CEO’s Twitter feed has notched up nearly 1,500 followers.
