Intermanager activities:
We are delighted to welcome Capt. Paddy McKnight as our International Maritime Organisation Permanent representative. InterManager was previously represented at the IMO by Svein Sorlie of Wilh. Wilhelmsen Holding ASA, who has now retired from shipping. Captain William (Paddy) McKnight spent 37 years in the Royal Navy, during which time he Commanded three warships – HMS Shetland (an offshore fishery protection vessel) and frigates HMS Leander and HMS Brave – and was second-in-command of The Royal Yacht Britannia. He was later Captain of the Royal Navy Presentation Team followed by a diplomatic posting as Naval AttachΓ© to Rome, Italy. On leaving the Royal Navy he spent 15 years as the UK representative at The Japanese Shipowners’ Association which entailed interaction with all the leading shipping trade organisations as well as the IMO. In particular, he was a member of the shipowners’ delegation throughout the genesis and development of the Maritime Labour Convention at the ILO in Geneva. Capt. McKnight was promoted Lieutenant of The Victorian Order in 1985 and subsequently appointed as a Gentleman Usher to HM The Queen in 1999.

Believe this does not come as a surprise to anyone who follows closely all activities on board of the vessel – encourage further reading on: http://www.warsashacademy.co.uk/research/horizon.aspx
