Commenting on his new role, Jeffrey said:

"I am delighted, honoured and excited to be taking over as Chairman of Maritime UK. In the past few years Maritime UK has grown from a fledgling coalition of maritime interests into a respected and influential industry lobby. Maritime UK has delivered a 'strategic partnership' with government that few other industries can boast, and we are using our new alliances across government to build the most attractive and competitive environment for maritime business anywhere in the world. London International Shipping Week, in which Maritime UK played a significant role, has provided fresh momentum in how the UK's maritime services communicate and work with government. It is our job now to build on this new influence and deliver further tangible success for the industry."
