Maritime PR and publishing company Elaborate Communications is expanding its sales force and restructuring after the success of London International Shipping Week (LISW), its joint venture with Petrospot.
LISW founder and Elaborate Managing Director Sean Moloney said: “It was absolutely fantastic to see years of planning come to fruition in such a successful and well-attended week. When I first mooted the idea more than a year ago I could never have anticipated that so many maritime organisations and companies would get involved. And to have the Government fully support this London showcase event was the ultimate endorsement.”
He added: “I am grateful to my fantastic team here at Elaborate and looking forward to the next London International Shipping Week.”
Elaborate Communications has added to its management team and is recruiting additional sales staff for its leading maritime publications Ship Management International and The Ship Supplier to cope with the expanded business. Joint Managing Director Jean Winfield has stepped down to pursue her personal business interests.
Mr Moloney said: “We are grateful to Jean for her contribution to the company and wish her well in her new venture. Meanwhile Elaborate is going from strength to strength and we are very excited about our future expansion plans.”
