Soerensen resigns from lobby group ELAA
Ken Soerensen, executive director of the European Liner Affairs Association, has resigned after heading the a Brussels-based liner carrier lobby group during its first two years.
He will leave June 30 to take a job within the industry and will not renew his current two-year contract with the association.
The European Liner Affairs Association has not said who will succeed Soerensen and said it has begun the process of recruiting a successor.
Klaus Meves, chairman of the European Liner Affairs Association and of the German shipping group Hamburg Sud, said Soerensen’s energy to the current review process of EC Regulation 4056/86 has been “outstanding.”
“The members thank him for his contribution,” Meves added.
Soerensen was the inaugural executive director of the association, helping to establish the new association from its inception in May 2003.
He is expected to announce his next career move in the next few days.
