In our special column this time, we are pleased to host an interview with Mr. Nick Brown, Communications Director, Bureau Veritas Marine & Offshore who says that by accident or luck, PR and communications felt right for a career in shipping, which is a indispensable part of the modern world trade, both a challenging and important industry.
Nick Brown joined the Wallem Group in Hong Kong as a commercial trainee in 1991 and held various development roles in Hong Kong, Bangkok and Ho Chi Minh City. At INTERCARGO he further developed his understanding of marine commercial, technical and regulatory affairs while representing the association's global shipowner base. As Business Development Manager at e-procurement start-up OneSea.com, he experienced phase 1 of shipping's digital revolution. He has substantial experience of dealing with the media on a daily basis and in crisis situations following major marine casualties. Today he is responsible for promoting and protecting the reputation and interests of the Marine & Offshore business of Bureau Veritas (BV).
