London: Lloyd's Register's Board of Trustees has selected Thomas Thune Andersen as the Chairman-elect of the Lloyd's Register Group, to succeed current chairman David Moorhouse after he retires. Andersen, who was appointed as a Trustee by the General Committee in June, will take over from Moorhouse who is due to retire at the end of 2010 after serving eleven and a half years as the chairman of the group.
Moorhouse commented: "It is a great pleasure for me to welcome my successor, Thomas Andersen. I have every confidence that he, together with [Chief Executive] Richard Sadler and his management team, will lead this organisation to even greater success in the future. The Lloyd's Register Group has a significantly more diversified range of activities today than at any time in its history. That diversity has helped us to weather the current economic storm and has given us great confidence as we look to the short and long-term future of the group."  [25/10/10]
