Federal Maritime Commission appointments

On February 13, 2012 U.S. President Barack Obama announced he was submitting Federal Maritime Commission Chairman Richard Lidinsky's name for reappointment as chairman of the Commission.

The Federal Maritime Commission, which celebrated its 50th anniversary last year, is an independent regulatory agency responsible for the regulation of oceanborne transportation in the foreign commerce of the U.S. 

Prior to joining the Federal Maritime Commission, Mr. Lidinsky worked in the maritime trade industry for nearly 40 years, holding a number of positions in both business and government.  From 1986 to 2006, he worked at the global maritime company Sea Container Ltd., where he established its Washington D.C. office and served as Vice President for Governmental Affairs.   From 1975 to 1986, he served as Director of Tariffs and national Port Affairs at the Maryland Port Administration.  Mr. Lidinsky also served as a member of the Sealift Transportation Committee of the National Defense Transportation Association; as Board Director on the Defense, Transportation and Port Security Committee of the British-American Business Association; and as a High-Level Expert to the U.S. NATO Delegation on the Ports and Intermodal Transportation Committee from 1995-2005

Chairman Lidinsky is a strong supporter of Amver and has spoken at Amver awards ceremonies in the past. We congratulate him on his reappointment!
