North P&I boosts APAC team with expert’s relocation


By Gabriel Olano

North P&I Club is strengthening its Asia-Pacific loss prevention team through the addition of Andrew Glen (pictured), who has relocated to Singapore from the firm’s head office in the UK.

Glen, a master mariner, joined North in 2006 and spent seven years in a loss prevention role at the firm’s head office, before transitioning into a project development role in 2013. Returning to loss prevention, Glen’s role will now be primarily member-facing, with a particular focus on working with North’s membership in China, Japan, and South Korea. He joins Aniruddha Desai who has been with North’s loss prevention team in Singapore since 2015.

“The relocation of Andrew Glen to our Singapore office underpins our commitment to loss prevention support in the region,” said James Moran, North P&I Club’s director in Singapore. “His skills and experience complement those of Aniruddha Desai. Between them, they have spent a combined 34 years at sea and will bring together their knowledge and expertise to successfully deliver our loss prevention initiatives for members in the region.”

According to North, its dedicated loss prevention team in the region is fully integrated with its head office team in Newcastle and provides loss prevention support to North’s Asia-Pacific members, including individual assistance for members and an array of publications, briefings and other tools, as well as North’s residential training courses, held in the UK and Singapore.

Asia-Pacific accounts for 36% of North’s total entered tonnage of 195 million GT.
