+34 years experience
Gordon is a specialist in what has become a complex field. With investment firms now taking a larger percentage of distressed shipping lines, it’s hard to get a real view of a vessel’s operations and ownership structure. And with the rise of “shell companies” Gordon’s skills are relied upon to identify the true owners of vessels.
He has been involved in analysing and eliminating any weaknesses in the Lloyd’s List Intelligence database, adding hugely to customer value. He was also responsible for introducing industry innovations such as MMSI numbers, engine types and the evolution of flags of convenience to the database.
