Philippine Transmarine Carriers (PTC) Vice-Chairman and CEO Gerardo A. Borromeo has been appointed as the new president for InterManager, the international trade association for in-house and third party ship managers. Borromeo is the first Filipino to be elected unopposed for this leading post last October 11, succeeding Alastair Evitt, managing director of Meridian Marine Management, who completed his two-year term of office.

Over the past several years, Borromeo has served on the executive committee of InterManager which now has a membership of 91 – both full and associate members – involved in the management of almost 5,000 vessels and some 250,000 crew.

Borromeo has been responsible for the development and implementation of the PTC Group’s strategic initiatives and business development activities engaged in crew management, education and training; medical diagnostics; chartering and logistics; agency and freight forwarding; real estate development; and land-based deployment.

Borromeo earned his Bachelors and Masters degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Massachusetts, USA. He also serves a vice chairman of the International Chamber of Shipping and a member of the Board of Trustees for the Filipino Shipowners Association.
