James Ward - chairman of British Marine’s Membership and Marketing Committee
James Ward, Marine Resources MD, has been appointed chairman of British Marine’s Membership and Marketing Committee.
The committee supports and advises the work of the executive team at Marine House, focusing on membership benefits and the marketing of British Marine members.
Mr Ward has already served two years as a committee member before taking up the position of chairman.
In his new role, he will look to drive the committee’s support for the evolvement of British Marine services and engage more UK marine businesses with the diverse benefits of membership.
“No doubt as always there are challenges on the way, but a recognition that evolution is required in a few areas is important and British Marine is clearly motivated to evolve,” said Mr Ward.
“We need to make sure that all current members and potential new ones, understand that value and what being part of such a prominent organisation can do for them. If during my time as chairman there is significant evolution to help achieve this, then it will have been a success.”
