Chris Charman has been appointed as chief executive of the International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) taking over from Hugh Williams who is retiring.
The IMCA chief executive will lead the IMCA secretariat and is responsible for delivering the association’s extensive global work program.
Charman is a fellow of the Institute of Risk Management, and an associate member of both the Chartered Institute of Insurers and Chartered Institute of Arbitrators.
After leaving the Navy, Charman worked as a loss adjuster in London, Hong Kong, Papua New Guinea and Indonesia, travelling through most of the Asia Pacific region – dealing with the impacts of poor or failed risk management.
Armed with this knowledge, Charman moved to the front end of the process, dealing with risk management and risk financing regionally for CURM in Singapore, returning to the UK as managing director in 1999 and overseeing the acquisition of the business by Thomas Miller.
In 2007, Charman moved to HSBC to develop their global business in the UK, EU and Asia Pacific. Since Marsh took over the HSBC client base, he has been involved with risk financing work for Heritage, and was interim head of operational risk consortium at the Association of British Insurers.
