Fleet’s 25th-anniversary finale

(Posted on 18/11/19)

Fleet Management has celebrated ‘on turning 25’ with a grand cocktail party hosted at Four Seasons Hotel, Hong

Kong on 8 November and an exclusive gala dinner at Aberdeen Marina Club the night before.

Over 500 distinguished ship owners, partners and dignitaries graced the events including the Shipping Deputy

Minister to the President, Republic of Cyprus, Ms Natasa Pilides and Consul Generals from 8 countries. Also in

attendance were executives from Ace Tankers, AMCL, AMP, Chellaram Shipping, Chemship BV, CIDO

Shipping, COSCO Shipping Development Co., Ltd, E Ships, Goldman Sachs, Hansa Tankers, Inventor

Chemical Tankers, J.P. Morgan, KC Maritime, KKR, Kowa Kaiun Co. Ltd., MC Shipping, Mitsui & Co, Morgan

Stanley, Nathan Brandon, Polaris Shipping, Sanasia Management, Santana Shipping, Sinopec, Societe

Tufton Oceanic Shipping Management, UACC, UBS, and Valles Steamship Co., Ltd.

Harry Banga, the Chairman and CEO of the Caravel Group and Kishore Rajvanshy, Managing Director

of Fleet Management Limited, along with other senior executives of FLEET and Caravel Group were present to

host the guests.

Harry Banga said, “At a time when tensions over trade have never been more acute, the importance of relationships based on trust and mutual benefit has never been

greater. Over four decades, I have seen first-hand the level of co-operation and partnership that can be

achieved between and across national boundaries, which has helped us achieve the success we have

witnessed over the last 25 years. By strengthening that partnership and building on the trust that already exists,

utilising the enormous skills we have developed and tapping into the creativity and energy of our educated and

highly motivated youth, we have the opportunity to build a partnership that will make the world a better, safer

place. For our children and their children. Our annual celebrations, and the commemoration of FLEET’s silver

jubilee should be seen in this light.”

 

Kishore Rajvanshy, Managing Director, Fleet Management Limited, said, “Celebrating our 25th Anniversary

is our small way of saying thank you to our customers and patrons. From 1 to 500+ ships across diverse ship

types, our journey has been completely organic and driven by the passion of hundreds of shore colleagues and

thousands of seafarers, and trust of our clients. We have learnt from each other, grabbed every opportunity we

could, and molded our 25-year success story, step by step.”

The 25th-anniversary finale in Hong Kong marked the epilogue of the string of celebrations that kicked off in

September this year, with the first gala dinner hosted in Cyprus.
