The UK P&I Club, one of the leading providers of P&I insurance and other services to the international shipping community, has appointed Anuj Velankar as Regional Loss Prevention Director.

A master mariner, Anuj joined UK P&I Club in 2012 after 17 years at sea, sailing and commanding oil tankers and other vessels for various shipping companies.

Anuj is responsible for handling the loss prevention and risk management aspects of Members in South East Asia. Anuj is also involved in claims handling work for the local Members.

Anuj was instrumental in setting up the Club’s webinar series at the start of the pandemic, as the Club pivoted online to keep Members and the wider marine sector updated on industry developments. Since April 2020, the Club has hosted nearly 20 webinars, accumulating an impressive 20,000 attendees.

Stuart Edmonston, Director of Loss Prevention at UK P&I, says: “Anuj is a hugely respected and experienced marine professional, who has earned his stripes at sea - that really resonates with Members and colleagues alike. He’s shown enviable innovation and initiative to sharpen the Club’s digital communications, and we’re very happy to have him at the helm directing loss prevention activities in South East Asia.

“Anuj’s appointment sends a strong message to the maritime community in Singapore and beyond, and demonstrates the Club’s commitment and all-embracing focus on safety.”
