InterManager Vice President George Hoyt has been presented with an industry Lifetime Achievement Award in recognition of his services to shipping and to seafarers.
Executive Committee member Mr Hoyt chairs InterManager’s Key Performance Indicators Committee and is a director of KPI Association Ltd. He has been instrumental in progressing the KPI Project to produce an industry-wide performance management tool.
Mr Hoyt has been a member of the international shipping community for more than 30 years. In his role as founder of Newslink and The Face Of Shipping website, Mr Hoyt pioneered the production of daily electronic newspapers for crew members, ensuring seafarers were up to date with latest industry initiatives and news. In addition he is a non executive director of computer-based training provider Seagull and a Cyprus Shipping Chamber committee member.
He was presented with his Lifetime Achievement Award during this week’s Asia-Pacific Manning & Training Conference in Manila, Philippines (Nov 16-17). Presenting him with the award, conference chairman and InterManager President Alastair Evitt said: “I have known George for many years and I am delighted to present this award to him in recognition of his commitment to seafarers and to the shipping industry.”
Mr Hoyt told delegates: “I thank InterManager for the trust they have shown in me. We in the shipping industry all need to work together and to trust one another to do all we can for this industry and for the seafarers who are at the heart of it.”
