Summer 2017

A strong family history in shipping

James Fisher Everard has a new managing director.

Fiona Everard (above) has been appointed as the new managing director of James Fisher Everard in a role which encompasses James Fisher Shipping Services, James Fisher Crewing Services.

Continuing a proud tradition, Fiona follows in the footsteps her great aunt Ethel Everard who was a dominant force (and managing director) in the 1960s.

Fiona was working as a trainee in the family firm in 2007 when it was bought by the James Fisher group. Since then she has progressed her career through the commercial side of the company, moving up from analyst, through chartering director, to the management director’s office.

Fiona says:

"I’m delighted to take the post, particularly at a time when the company is doing so well and the entire fleet has such a strong reputation for safety – with two vessels having traded for over 15 years without a single lost time incident.

"We're also the first shipping company under a UK flag to have received certification for the recently revised quality management standard, ISO 9001: 2015, showing our continued commitment to putting the quality and safety of our operations first."
