Clients and staff gathered in Houston on 10 April to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of Clarkson Shipping Services LLC. Set in the beautiful Corinthian building in downtown Houston, more than 200 guests toasted this achievement whilst enjoying the classically trained "Collide" string quartet playing alongside a DJ set. Guests represented every major shipping market operating out of Houston - deep sea tankers, specialised products, LNG, LPG, offshore and capital markets/financial services.
CEO Andi Case welcomed everyone and emphasised Clarksons' continued investment into Research and Market Analysis as well as the growth of Clarkson Capital Markets in the US as part of the Group's committment to continually expand the quality and scope of the services it provides to clients.
Recalling that the office opened with only four staff and in thanking clients for their support over the past decade, head of the Houston office Roger Horton quoted Henry Ford who said "It is not the employer who pays the wages. Employers only handle the money. It is the customer who pays the wages."
