LONDON, U.K.–The Port Equipment Manufacturers’ Association, (PEMA), will welcome a new Head of Administration, Cassandra Kelly, on June 1, 2016. Following a two-month handover period, Kelly and the new role of Head of Administration will replace the PEMA Secretariat. This is the first time PEMA has had a full-time employee in London and this change has been made to accommodate the significant growth in PEMA’s membership and level of activity, said a release. The existing secretariat organisation will continue to lead projects such as the association’s information papers and presence at industry events such as TOC Europe until July 31, 2016.
“With extensive experience of administrative and project management, executive support, business operations, compliance and stakeholder engagement – specifically in the global maritime segment – Cassandra is the ideal person to ensure the continued smooth running of PEMA. We welcome her warmly to the association,” said PEMA President, Ottonel Popesco.
“We would also like to thank the outgoing PEMA Secretariat supplier NLI for the outstanding work done with PEMA since its establishment in 2004. As the association continues its growth, the PEMA Board and NLI are assessing options for future cooperation,” Popesco added.
