Wallem strengthens Ship Management team in China 

Identifying opportunities of significant value to Wallem Group in the Chinese ship management market, the company has appointed Mingfa Liu (刘明发) to the newly established role of Managing Director, Wallem Ship Management China.

Mingfa has rich experience and knowledge in the Chinese shipyard sector and an in depth understanding of the needs of the Chinese ship-owner market.

Mingfa will concentrate on Wallem’s relationships with shipyards and dry docks in China, and represent Wallem’s ship management and technical services to the country’s large number of ship owners.

Speaking of the appointment, Wallem Group CEO Simon Doughty said “we have the opportunity to provide a wider range of maritime solutions to clients, and build a stronger local client base in China.

“Wallem was established in Shanghai in 1903, and today our presence includes a well-established agency network and a ship broking office, and we are one of the largest foreign employers of Chinese seafarers.”

As the leading ship building and ship owning country by gross tonnage, China offers opportunities for ship management, new building supervision, ship agency, procurement services, lifeboat repair & maintenance, technical and crewing services and much more.

In his career Mingfa sailed as a marine engineer before coming ashore to work in the ship management industry. His management career has developed through senior roles in Hong Kong, UK and China and most recently included the senior management position in China for a leading global tanker owner.
