LOC Shifts Nick Haslam to London to Focus on Business Development

Tuesday / October 11, 2016


LOC Group, has moved one of its top performers from Asia back to London to focus on growing the company’s shipping services in London and around the world, the company announced.

Nick Haslam, Group Director of Shipping Services, joined LOC almost 20 years ago and has been based in Singapore for the last nine years. He has returned to London to focus on business development and intends to further grow the expert team over the next 12-18 months.

A Class 1 Master Mariner, he has more than 20 years of sea going experience on bulk carriers, LPG, container vessels, reefers, salvage tugs and AHTS, including command. Nick is also a Special Casualty Representative (Member of the Lloyds’ SCR Panel) and was one of the initial people invited to join the panel by the SCOPIC committee more than 16 years ago.

He has been involved in numerous high profile salvage and wreck removal operations around the world and is one of the most active SCRs on the panel.

“I am delighted to be back in London”, says Nick Haslam. “LOC has offices all around the world, and as Group Director I have leadership of the shipping business line to ensure growth and excellence within the sector, but I am glad to be able to focus on London as the leading global location for this industry.”

“LOC has a long respected history and despite the growth in maritime services elsewhere, nothing touches London as the home of shipping services. The P&I Clubs still have their headquarters here as does the Lloyds’ market, so do the maritime lawyers and the High Court and the arbitration system go back hundreds of years. The system is utterly tried, tested and trusted, there’s nowhere else like it for specialist knowledge and expertise,” he concludes.
