Kierstin Lachtman is currently Manager, Maritime Policy for Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) in Washington DC, where she developed maritime policy in concert with shipowner members, determining and co-ordinating shipping industry positions on safety, environmental, operational, and regulatory issues and advocating members’ positions at regulatory and industry fora, including IMO. Lachtman will operate from the Liberia Shipowners’ Council offices in Dulles, Virginia.
The Liberian Shipowners’ Council (LSC) is the voice of Liberian-flag shipowners. LSC is an international maritime trade association incorporated in 1974 as a non-profit corporation. It is the national association of shipowners who register their vessels under the Liberian-flag.
“Kierstin is a highly motivated and accomplished maritime professional with a well-deserved reputation for informed advocacy on behalf of shipowners. We look forward to working with her to expand and strengthen LSC,” said Adamantios M Lemos, Chairman of the LSC Board.
“On behalf of the Liberian Shipowners’ Council, I would like to express our profound gratitude to Joe for his outstanding leadership and dedication over the past 17 years. He will be greatly missed, but we are confident that our rigorous search process has provided us with an exceptional successor,” commented Lemos.
