Director General of the Maritime Authority of Jamaica, Rear Admiral Peter Brady, has been reappointed as a member of the World Maritime University (WMU) Board of Governors. He will serve as governor for an additional two terms, ending in February 2024.

Admiral Brady said he was honoured to be able to continue his work in support of the university. “I have been a board member since 2007 and, after this stint, I will have served for 17 years, including periods as the vice-chancellor and the chair of the board. The university has alumni from 170 countries and many Jamaicans have received their graduate degrees through generous fellowships provided by donor foundations and organisations.”

Kitack Lim, secretary general of the International Maritime Organization and chancellor of the university, shared his gratitude for Admiral Brady’s contribution, stating, “I look forward to our continued cooperation to build a sustainable and successful future for WMU.”

The university’s board of governors meets once per year at its Malmo, Sweden site and is responsible for exercising governance of the university, ensuring the effectiveness and continuity of its operations, protecting its autonomous nature, and maintaining academic and professional standards.

Another MAJ employee, Deputy Director General Claudia Grant, was honoured as an outstanding alumna at the university recently.
